Horsetail Falls (Columbia River Gorge, Oregon USA) generally looks something like this:
But it looked very
different on this icy December day several years ago. There was a thick layer of ice and snow above the splash pool, and several brave people ventured out upon it to get a unique vantage point. (Look for the two red coats in the lower left corner of the frame.) This gave me an unexpected photo opportunity, because it is generally impossible
to get a proper sense of scale for this 176 foot waterfall. I was doubly fortunate that they remained stationary during my 1/4 second exposure!
NOTE: When displayed at its default size, the photo may appear a bit "soft". FULL VIEW
is highly recommended for better appreciation of detail.(Nikon D90, Nikon 12-24 lens, circular polarizer, f/11 1/4 second, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod)
