Tamanawas Ice Cave
Can you see the waterfall? A lush green forest in summer, but a harsh, icy setting in winter. Enormous icicles had formed behind and around the waterfall, where freezing droplets from the spray combine to form massive structures. In just a few seconds my camera gear was frozen over so I acted quickly to get this final shot of the morning. After that I spent a while scraping the ice of my lens; my tripod did not collapse anymore until two hours later in the car. Big thanks to my friend Doug who is modeling for scale here.
