Close up of wintery waterfall 

When I dropped by the falls at Roswell Mill a couple of days ago, I was expecting the water to be more frozen. I found Vickery Creek flowing quickly over the dam and makinglots of spray at the base.  The water was then freezing in the surrounding tree branches.   This close up view shows the white branches to the right and the water glistening in the sun as it roared over the falls.  A beautiful sight to see.

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.

Roswell Mill on a Foggy Day

I wanted to see what the Roswell Mill waterfall looked like when it was foggy so, I stopped by on Monday.  Things are certainly on the monochrome side in the winter and on a foggy day with rain about to start.

Luckily, I brought my Sirui P-204S monopod along on this trip.  My main intent was to go out to the River Walk along the Chattahoochee so, I brought this with me to help steady the camera for nature shots.  My stop at the mill was unplanned but the monopod worked well to let me take this exposure that would have been pretty blurry when hand-held.

The Sirui monopod is great in that it has collapsible legs that allow you to stand the camera like a tripod and get long exposures.  I had to use the shutter timer to avoid shake (since I didn’t bring my cable release) but it worked well.
