When the water level drops below the ice, icicles form under there also. I was able to get this shot from downstream looking up Atherton Brook in Quabbin.

    Do a vertical flip of the image, and it looks like icy daffodils pushing up through the earth.

    I love that gray fading to black in the background, it really changes the sense of scale and gives one the feeling that there could be a lot of space back there.

    • There was space although probably not at the scale your are thinking. I used a shallow depth of field for the foremost icicles so they would stand out from the rest and that probably helps with the sense it is giving you. Thanks, Jackson.

    What sort of contortions did you have to go through to get this perspective? I can imagine you almost lying down, or at least kneeling and bending over precariously. Whatever–well worth it!

    • No contortions really, Gary. This brook is running fairly steeply downhill, so a point a few feet away is below the level of the water giving me easy access to the view. Kneeling was all that was necessary but even that is getting harder by the day. Thanks!
