    The gap between the icicles and their reflection drew my eye. I wondered for a while if they’d ever touch, and decided probably not. But the gap’s the thing, and the tension between “so close and yet so far” is almost palpable. Your photo reminded me of Michelangelo’s The Creation of Adam.

    • I looked through my images and couldn’t find any tapered icicles that touch the water. I would guess that once they do the water has frozen and they are connected in that way.I have shot a few where there is moving water and the icicles touch that. You’ve seen this one before.
      Ha, that’s quite a comparison. I wonder if one of them gave the other a static shock. πŸ™‚


  4. That really is some ice monster. Well done.
