01.25.2016 Cold Cascade

One last image from my trip to the river on Saturday.  I did make one recognizable image while there.  And I know I am going to catch some “heat” for not making a video of this as it sounded wonderful.  But it was cold enough that I must have been suffering from brain-freeze.  Or the onset of senility.  Probably both.

    Am trying to imagine the wonderful sound to go with the wonderful image. 🙂

  2. Video would have been amazing, but your work does not seem to be the product of someone with brain freeze, or a bout of senility…Just like wine time and experience makes some things better, and that’s what I see.


    • I’d rather be self-deprecating than boastful and usually express myself that way. I appreciate your support, Charlie. Dementia runs in the family, though, so senility is in my future.


  3. Ahh … I really like this one. Among your recent ice-themed images, this one stands out. I like the way movement in the middle (captured with just the right shutter) is framed by the static patches of ice above and below. I also think that keeping the subtle color intact was a good choice. Nice in every way. D

  4. The water just above the center of the image seems to be glowing.

    I’m intrigued by the way the light seems to be flowing between the “light ice” and the “dark ice.”

    • I often expose for the cascade for two reasons. First so I don’t blow out the whites and second to allow the whites to shine brightest against the black water. The rock made the foreground ice dark and the sky lit the upper ice. The motion of the water is the story and the contrast between solid and liquid the subplot.


  6. Beautiful capture, Steve. I love the movement of the water framed by that gorgeous ice. I completely appreciate that you brave what must be uncomfortably cold temperatures to capture these amazing images! I’m glad I spotted your YouTube channel and thoroughly enjoyed the waterfall videos that you have posted. More, please. Perhaps when the weather warms up a bit.

    • For sure there will be more, I.K. For New England the cold has not been nearly as frigid as we would expect here. It has only been in the teens a few times which is more or less average cold. Single numbers and below are when it gets uncomfortable and require really bundling up. I know that 25° probably sounds polar to a Southern Cal Gal. 🙂

      OTOH, I do enjoy being out in the spring more than the winter. It won’t be too long now.
