The photographic explorations of a former film student.

Frozen Waterfalls

A couple of weeks ago, I was part of a small expedition from the local photo club that journeyed to a state park known for steep climbs and impressive waterfalls. Needless to say, the trails were difficult in the ice. This is one of the better footholds.

The falls, however, were worth it. Here are two different long shots of the first and largest fall we visited.

I also shot some closer shots of some smaller ice formations to the sides of the falls.

Up close, the ice on the falls looked like some kind of vintage floral pattern.

After lunch, we hiked a short trail to a smaller fall.

This is what the ice looked like from behind the fall. I increased the saturation and tweaked the color a little, but yes, it was close to this color.
