Ice flow on Schaghticoke Ridge

Ice flow on Schaghticoke Ridge

On a very cold day a few weeks ago we took a hike up the Appalachian Trail on Schaghticoke Ridge just south of Kent, Connecticut. We were about to turn around as it was extremely cold when we saw an ice flow from a seep in the ground ahead so we kept going.

It’s tough to know if formations like this will have interesting ice formations to shoot but on close inspection, this flow, which was about 15 feet wide and close to 100 feet long was a gold mine.

I took over 200 images in the 45 minutes we spent there and I could have spent the rest of the day there had it not been extremely cold. It’s taken me a while to get through the images and this set is the first group, there are many more from different areas of the flow.

This group were all taken in a four foot square section that had an unusual formation in it which you can see in the first shot in the group. All shots after the first were taken either within the formation or just off frame left or right. It was absolutely in credible, I could have spent all day in this one spot.
