02.19.2019 Ice Chandelier

I’ve always just called these frozen waterfalls, but I saw chandeliers in a vlog and like that better.

This is an older shot of the waterfall over the dam that holds back the waters of Puffer’s Pond in Amherst, MA. As you might imagine, it was quite a cold morning.  I’d post a more recent image but the bridge that one must stand upon for this view is currently under reconstruction and off limits to all.

    That’s so impressive. About how high is the feature? It looks enormous. The sort-of-gnarly texture, combined with the graceful draping, is interesting. When that begins to melt away, is it a steady drip and flow, or are there falling chunks as well?

    • This is a crop so appears taller although at 32 feet still fairly tall. I haven’t witnessed its demise in the past so can’t say. I would guess that the warmer the temperature there would be chunks as the structure weakens.

  2. Absolutely beautiful. I normally think of grace as being warm, but it can be cold too.

  4. Beautiful. Even if this winter is being a bit wearing, you cannot get tired of sights like this chandelier. 🙂

    • Funny you should mention wearing at our patience with so much cold. As the weekend draws nearer, our temperatures will rise a bit and I am sorry to not have more ice to work with. But there are still plenty of cold days ahead. I have made some nice ice and snow images as late as early April, so something remains to anticipate before the lady’s slippers pop up.
