Frozen

I had some computer issues yesterday so I didn’t get a chance to make my post. I had intended to split these images up over a couple of days. The photographs are from three of the waterfalls that can be found in Starved Rock State Park here in Illinois.

I took a 6 mile hike and stopped at Wildcat, LaSalle, and French Canyons. The day I was there a couple of the trails were closed due to dangerous conditions. This winter has been pretty mild as far as precipitation goes. I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty of these ice formations. My only regret is that the sky was overcast limiting the light a bit.

    I could look at photos like this every day Jimmy, simply stunning. How do they freeze like that. Nothing like that happens in Australia.

    Really beautiful, James. That first one is a stunner. There are others in the mix that are extra special too. I love the one at the end where you can see the pile up of ice, like it froze in mid-flow. Ice is beautiful, especially like this. Thank you for sharing these!
