The Beauty of Icy Waterfalls


After a few days of below freezing temperatures, the majestic waterfalls in the Columbia River Gorge are rimmed with ice.

Icicles form along side the falls and ice covers the tree branches.

The area becomes a winter wonderland and a magnet for photographers.

Bring a tripod, slow down the lens, keep the lens clear of mist and focus on the icicles.

Maybe you’ll shoot a photo suitable for a Holiday card.
