12.23.2019 Monochrome Monday Side Cascade Intimate

Similar to yet different than the image from this shoot that I posted last Friday.  This is in the lower right of yesterdays composition and is another delicate ice formation that caught my eye even before the cascade.

I would love to be in the position to photograph this over the hours it took for the formation to develop.

    It’s interesting to see the difference between the accretion on the far left (thick at the top, slender at the bottom) and the one on the far right where the formation’s reversed. Between them, the two at an angle are particularly curious. I can’t figure those out at all. I wonder if bent twigs (or something similar) provided a base for the ice to build on.

    • I am not sure what influenced the flow to create the angularcicles but there is a small one on Friday’s image also. I’d guess that the water was bouncing off some of the verticalcicles and formed a sloping object. There might be another object within the ice as you mention but I didn’t check it out.

    Lovely combination of sharp ice and smooth water.

  3. Beautiful triangular composition echoed in the accretions. And again, a perfect soft/sharp balance.

  4. Nice Stephen! Ice is always fun to photograph! I used to photograph ice years ago with a polarizing filter. Gave some interesting colors in the ice. Then if you went to grayscale you got different tones in the ice. Enjoyed seeing your ice images!!

    Being able to watch this form and take a series of photos would be great, but I shiver just thinking about it. 🙂 The range of tones you have here is amazing. Well done!

    A time lapse of ice formation would be awesome!

  7. In the earlier post my eyes singled out this formation, so it attracted both of us.
