Winter Gold

February 18th, 2014

This has been a long hard winter, and it’s not over yet.  But there are some benefits to this awful weather.  It’s the best year in at least a decade for frozen waterfalls.  I couldn’t let that go by without making some photos.

I found a brave volunteer in Ayn who was willing to suffer the cold and ice for the sake of these photos.  I’m very pleased with the results.  I can only hope that Ayn feels it was worth the pain.

We went to Hocking Hills in the early morning.  Ash Cave was amazing, but also had a lot of other people there taking photos of the first time in more than 30 years that the waterfall was frozen from top to bottom.  So we went on to other locations that were less popular and much harder to get to.  Here’s what we came away with.

Thank you Ayn.  You are amazing.

    Very cool. And a perfect model for the job. Kudos to both of you.

    A friend went to Ash Cave this afternoon and called to tell me that the ice had fallen. He also said that someone fell today at Cantwell Cliffs, where the last four of these photos were taken.
