Falling Waters and Frigid Ice by Terence Russell

Falling Waters and Frigid Ice by 

Taken from the upper level of the Cave of the Winds (the lower level not open during the winter season). The noise was immense and the platform crowded, but I edged my way through the crowd to leaned over the rail and captured as much of the surrounding scene as possible. Another image where I feared there would be too little contrast between all the “white” elements, but, in by post processing the RAW image in Photomatrix Pro 3.2, I was able to enhance the contrast.

    wow amazing image! looks like your having a winter blast on your trip :))

  • We did, without benefit of skis, skates, or snowshoes. Just nice warm coats, hats and gloves! ;) I’m glad to be home, however, where the temp is in the 70s (F) today!
