Icy realm

What do you get when you combine saturated soils with freezing temperatures?


Frozen waterfalls. Icy pillars of stalactites meeting stalagmites. Delicate icicles clinging to the rimrock.


What do you get when you try to capture the reflection of the sun shimmering across the frozen crystals?

Why an ice spear to the face and a wet camera lens of course!


Worth it though. I've tried taking photos of the rimrock many, many times but I can never capture the intricacies in color and texture of the moss clinging to the rock; it always looked so washed out and just plain weird. Not today though, today it was the perfect backdrop for the icicles.


I'm lichen it! :)
