Wall of Ice
Yes! The season of ice is upon us! I love winter for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the return of one of my favorite photographic subjects: ICE. Ice comes in an infinite variety of shapes and formations and I never tire of photographing it. This particular "Wall of Ice" is the cliff face of High Falls at Grand Portage State Park in northeast Minnesota. The main channels of water on the falls are still running freely, but on either side of the running water is an amazing garden of ice. The waterfall freezes differently each year based on the water level and weather conditions. One thing is for certain, it is ALWAYS interesting and ALWAYS beautiful!
