Natural landscapes: the quick freeze


I didn’t expect this waterfall, one of seven in Johnston Canyon, to be so close to frozen over. But a very cold snap in early November brought the onset of ice. It was still a great scene to photograph, though. I put a neutral density (darkening) filter on the lens to ensure a looong exposure that would turn the water silky. Nikon D7100, tripod, polarizing filter.
