Sometimes I just like to take the scenic route home. Yesterday I swung by Dismal Falls for some frozen waterfall photography!
I strapped on my waders and started milling about, feeling my way through the ice. I creeped forward towards the opening in the ice, making sure not to fall off the shelf that I knew was there! I got as close as I could while staying in my comfort zone(I really didn't want to fall in).
This photo is a composite of multiple shots to capture moving ice on the lower left.
I really like this icicle shooting out diagonally.
Then, climbing around on the ice and rocks of the falls, I got as close to these foreground icicles as I could(again, really didn't want to slide off into the water!) The longer I stayed there the more the fog appeared, which add a really nice element to the top of the photo.
By now the rain was coming down at a pretty good pace. This was the first time I had really soaked the new Pentax, and fortunately it survived just fine. Before leaving, I crawled up to the top of the falls to grab one shot of the classic Dismal Falls composition. I just love how this part of the fall sort of 'reaches' out to the viewer.
Thanks for looking!
