Ponytail Falls (Columbia River Gorge, Oregon USA) looks very different during autumn:



It was worth braving the cold weather to get this shot.

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, neutral density filter, f/5, 30 seconds, Bogen/Manfrotto tripod)

Oddly, this makes me want to go play SSX. Perhaps not so odd. Just all the cold and the snow. :XD:

This is the best waterfall shot yet, Greg. I am in love with it! I like how the ice crystals have formed around rocks to make eddies and whirlpool patterns. And the blue color is truly from heaven. You have set the bar high with this one!

Thanks, Jean! I don't think that I will post any more winter waterfall photos, at least not for a while. This one makes me shiver just looking at it. If you are interested in side views from that trip (with some serious icicles!), see [link] and/or [link]
