During the last cold snap, I took a walk along our neighborhood creek and found these neat ice formations. Although I am not a big fan of cold weather, I like the opportunity to take some unusual and visually striking images.
Had a great 3+ days with the family staying in a cabin, hiking around, and taking photos of the winter scenery. There was not enough snow to cross-country ski or sled, but the cold temps and the couple of inches on the ground (and on branches) made for some great photo opportunities. I’m posting a few today and will follow up in the next few days. Meanwhile enjoy and feel free to leave comments, especially constructive critiques.
Here’s a basic view of the falls.
After spending some time shooting from straight on (more or less) while experimenting a bit with different focal lengths, I started to see if I could find a different way to see the falls. I liked this side view a lot.
And I also liked this close-up view of the icicles behind the falls.
Elakala Falls is another beautiful water fall in the park. It’s not as imposing as Blackwater, but quite beautiful just the same, perhaps more so.
