01.16.2020 More Winter 2018 Hiatus

Following up on yesterday’s Ice Cube image from a period when I wasn’t posting much, or at all, for a few months.

On this day in 2018 it was cold.  Below 0° cold which is what it takes to get a waterfall and its surrounds to be this frosty. Today is the last of our warm days and tonight the chill returns to be followed by zero or below if one can believe the forecast. It will take several days of cold to freeze a waterfall this way but the volume of water is there for frozen spray to coat the trees. Fingers crossed…although I bet many of my neighbors are not looking forward to that temperature.

Please click the images to see them at their best.

  1. What a winter wonderland, as they say. You did yourself proud. You got the right camera settings to make the water in the first picture’s lower left look like waves of hair. Good luck with your hard freeze.

    The complexity of both images is remarkable. They have an air of unreality about them, even though they obviously are quite real. The combination of textures is exciting; I found myself wandering through each of them for some time, picking out first this detail and then that. You’ve produced some fine ice and snow photos over the years, but these are — well, just as I said. Remarkable.

    • Thanks, Linda. I was very happy with these ( even happier reading these comments) and especially the first with its story about the frozen mists from the waterfall. I’m glad that you found a lot to enjoy in these as sometimes more is less to turn a phrase on its head.

    It really is a fantasy world that you create with these images. I love that you make such spectacular art from a phenomenon that is nearby, and one that I imagine many people don’t see at all because it’s just so damn cold outside. If other people do see these places in these conditions, it’s very unlikely they would take what they witness to this level of refinement.
