The foreguess yesterday was for rising temperatures with mixed precipitation turning to all rain. It started to come down around 9:30 am as freezing rain…I got my camera bag closed just in time…and did eventually turn to mostly rain. They got one right.
I visited two spots and this image is from the Amethyst Brook area where I shoot cascades and a waterfall (see also my slot cascade shot from two posts ago-“Going Big Time”) in warmer times. Yesterday started at @24°F, after a week or so of single digit nights and days in the teens, and that meant a lot of ice and snow remained. Again, most of the ice was covered and the waterfall was frozen over, which is usually a good thing as I will share tomorrow, but also covered and not very photogenic.There were a few, as Andrew described one the other day, iceholes and I found this one that had some nice shaping and frosty edges.
Again, not much noticeable color so we went monochrome.

I was hesitant to walk out very far on the ice shelf adjacent to this, so used my 70-200 for ease of framing.
This may or may not appeal to others, but I enjoyed the shaping that developed and the frost and crisp snow I find enjoyable as well. YMMV 🙂
