Not frozen but icy

Yesterday, I went over to see what the falls at Roswell Mill looked like.  I guess our couple of days with below freezing temperatures were not enough to freeze the water over.  It was rushing pretty fast but, the spray from the falls was icing over the nearby trees.

I went down near the base of the falls and the surrounding rocks were slippery with ice as well and there were icicles along the surrounding slopes where water ran down the sides of the rock face.  The sun was out and the day was actually truning rather pleasant at that point.  I got a few shots and said Hi to several groups that were out hiking so, it wasn’t a wasted trip.

I guess this was one of those times when you wish for winter weather so you can get those beautiful landscape shots but are also thankful that you don’t live somewhere too cold.  Kind of like when you want snow for Christmas but don’t want it to stay around.  Winter is always fun for a day but when you have to shovel snow or slip on ice it’s not so much fun anymore.  Oh well, it was a pretty day anyway.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
