Pine Swamp Ice

Pine Swamp Ice

Pine Swamp, West Cornwall, Connecticut. Dave and I snowshoed up to our favorite beaver sanctuary on the Appalachian trail near here.

This was an interesting day to shoot ice: the ice patterns were plentiful but getting to them was treacherous in places. At one point I was standing on what looked like a solid shelf of snow and ice and the next minute I was in up to my waist with water up to my knees. I pulled my legs out fast enough so that my gaiters saved me but it was a real wake up call, getting wet out there on a 15F day can lead to serious problems.

That aside, it was a great day to be out.
