03.01.2019 Murphy Falls Frozen Cascade

17 degrees provided some nice ice this morning along Dean Brook and the cascade I call Murphy Falls. I was wearing my winter hiking boots rather than knee high Muck boots so wading soaked my jeans up about 6 inches but stayed out of my boots which is key when doing winter wading. 🙂

I considered this for black and white but decided I like the colorful rock in an otherwise monotone setting.

BTW, I am unable to type the code for the degree symbol here on WordPress. I’ve always used alt+0176 but now it wants to make me leave the page.  Any suggestions?

    A quick note re: the degree symbol. It threw me off the site, too. Then I remembered that the NumLock has to be on, and that took care of the problem: alt+0176 worked again. If that doesn’t work for you, there is a degree symbol included with the special characters in the editor.

  2. In your photo the main brown area at the left has an echo in the fainter brown area to its right. You know that I’m almost always a color-keeper, but because you’re not averse to monochrome and because there’s already brown in the scene, have you considered a sepia version of the image?

    This is lovely, it makes me think of some sort of a curtain into a fantasy world.

    I saw the curtain, too, but instead of it hiding something, I saw it parting, as if to allow the larger formation in the foreground to emerge to take a ‘curtain call.’ It’s certainly a dramatic image.

    This image shows your mastery of the subject, and the tools. I like the slight yellow tone here, instead of bluish ice, becasue I remember seeing that color a lot in thick ice in places like this. I’m sorry I’ve been away for so long – I have been letting email pile up.
