Re: A New Roof
In reply to Geo Wharton, 1 month ago

A lot of expense for the roof.  They better paint the sides now to complete the look.  White seems an unusual colour.  Most images of barns here are red but that is likely the photographers choice.

Re: Brent: Two more images to show scale
In reply to 19andrew47, 1 month ago

Andrew:

What a nice write-up - thanks a lot.  We have a much smaller falls close to here that drops about 65 feet.  The falls themselves freeze up - it sounds like music when the water is running through the frozen tubes and you can walk behind the falls.  It is one of my favorite yearly photo hikes.  Really like the documentary shots to give it context.

Thanks for the effort!

The ice build up is relatively close to the falls, but not right at the water drop. There is much more at the American falls than at the Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side. At the bottom of the American Falls there is a large build up of rock that has fallen off the face of the falls over many years. The mist freezes on the rocks when it is cold enough and the ice build up starts. The uninterupted cold spell of the past winter caused the large build up visible in this image. It has been many years since this has occurred to this extent.

I have included two more images here to give you an idea of the scale. The Falls drop is 165 ft. The vertical image includes Bridal Veil Falls and to its left, the American Falls. You can see the space between the ice and the face of the falls there. The horizontal view shows both the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls. I did not crop the horizontal image so that you would get a better idea of scale.

Riverside scene
In reply to 19andrew47, 1 month ago

The best part about this image was that I ate a chocolate peanut butter ice cream sundae with hot fudge and caramel syrup right before taking this picture!  And I lived to tell about it.

'When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stonecutter hammering away at
his rock perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it.
Yet at the hundred and first blow it will split in two,
and I know it was not that blow that did it,
but all that had gone before.'

Not the scene I was expecting Andrew.

But very beautiful.  I've never been there in the winter.  It must be brutal!

Very soothing and peaceful to look at.

Adds a bit of drama to the images.

I was already thinking pretty much the same about getting ice cream before I saw this post.  I think I have just lost all willpower and will be shortly making a trip to the freezer.

Nice image by the way but it doesn't compare to the thoughts now running through my head!

It was very cold, about -15 C to - 20 C but the sun was out and it was quite lovely.  No wind that day and the cold temperatures kept the ever present mist down compared to in warmer weather.  Very few tourists as well.  They didn't know what they were missing!  I took wandered about with camera in hand and no gloves on for two hours.

Hope you were being facetious! The traffic here is slow recently, better this week than last but it is summer (for us in the northern hemisphere) and people are busy. I really did like both. The mono is a little dark but it is suppose to be night and I think it works.

No - I did not mean to seem so ungrateful. I was in a hurry and typed it wrong. I meant to write "I guess the PS is NOT a total turn-off."  I know PS work turns a lot of people off - and was pleased that I got a couple of nice comments on the picts.

Thanks for saying something Andrew or I would have just left it.
