Ice at low angle

Ice at low angle

Appalachian Trail, south end of Schaghticoke Ridge.

Nora and I used micro-spikes to hike three miles up the south end of the ridge to a small stream I’ve photographed ice on before, hoping to get a few ice shots this year. The hike was great although we had to push it because of the incoming snow storm. And, the stream did not disappoint; it was loaded with ice formations and I took over 100 shots which will take a while to sort through.

This one was an experiment: instead of shooting straight down at the ice pattern I placed the camera very close to the ice and shot at low angle toward the water. I like the effect.
