I really had hope for some sunshine for the weekend, but today was rather dull!

Well I got out anyway, to capture some icefall not far from where I live…

The image is not shining with brightness and looks more like black and white, but that is typical for an overcast day this time of year!

Hopefully I will have another opportunity later, where I can capture some blue sky too…

So the colder weather has finally arrived then...

Nice capture - have you really had all that rain, or did you find a wet area? Love all the colours in the ice by the way...

Hi Pablo

I've always wanted to capture something like this here, too, but never had my camera on me when i saw the biggest or most beautiful ones :(
This is a splendid shot, with a great pespective and sense of size to these big icefalls.
Lovely details, good exposure management and charming composition.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Pablo,
Beautiful winter landscape.POV,details,framing and visual impact are excellent.After a sunny working days,today is overcast here too:(

Hi Pablo.
Very impressive POV and interesting subject for shooting. It is an icefall from a thawing snow, is not it? We have not winter this year and I see such nice winter shots with great pleaser. Great natural scene shot with true colours, excellent details and sharpness. My best wishes and TFS.

Superb icefall, Pablo!
I love the perspective here: it simply towers over us!
The many colours are very realistic (my favourite place for these is Mont Royal in Quebec (I worked in office at McGill University overlooking one!)
Teh dullness of the day has not dimmed the beauty of this scene, but I do hope that you can shoot another on a sunny day -- they have a whole other quality

bonjour Pablo,
très impressionnante image, une rivière tranformée comme par magie.
Même si le ciel n'est pas bleu, ça vaut le détour.


Its COLD where you are Pablo! :)
Nice ice formations.
I like the colors in the ice.
Great depth of field!

Hi Pablo,
Absolutely uncommont image for me, living in the sun side of the world. Excellent pov, impressive perspective and perfect composition. And, over all, you have captured cold!
TFS, José M.
I'll post a sunny photo northen TN's members.

Hi Pablo,
Do they also climb them? I have seen it on TV a few times and it looks pretty dangerous.

If all goes right, you might get some better weather from the south. We had our first spring day today.

The different colors in the ice are really wonderful. The slightly angled POV works great, and give the photo some dynamic.

Indudablemente que el punto de vista es uno de los puntos fuertes de esta escena Pablo impactando sobre la vista gratamente.
Una composición casi monocromática con tenues colores e iluminación que genera un agradable efecto.
El recorte elegido armoniza con la estética de la presentación.
Mis mejores saludos... Ricardo

Undoubtedly that the point of view is one of the strong points of this scene Pablo impacting pleasurably on the view.
An almost monochrome composition with tenuous colors and illumination that it generates a pleasant effect.
The elected cropping harmonizes with the aesthetics of the presentation.
My best regards... Ricardo

Wow pablo this is just stunning. It looks so beautiful. You have really captured the lovely ice formations here



Hi Pablo, splendid composition with frozen waterfall, splendid delicate colors, like a B&W, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hello Pablo! BRRRR!!!!! looks cold where you live!!! Here too though I'm afraid! only 14F at this time. Love the shot...nice ice formations! TFS

thanks for your comments on my photo "looking for lunch" :o)

Hi Pablo,
Wonderful landscape here!
Very good POV to catch this icefall and the perspective got.
It's a very good exposed picture to handle all that whites from ice and the sky.
I like so much the composition made, the slopes, and the plain frame used.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
Best regards,

Hi Pablo,

A school example about ice fall, you did again a wonderful discovery, love all the colours in the ice by the way, very well done!

Have a nice sunday,

hi pablo,
looks like its chilling cold here,
nice capture,
well composed shot,
point of view is good,
exposure managed well,
tfs & regards

Hi dear Pablo ,
very nice image.
interesting subject and great sharpness.
well composed and great light.
very well done.
thanks and regards


Hello Pablo,
That's what I though when I saw this picture... That it would have been nice with a blue sky and blue reflection on the ice but it is still a beautiful shot with excellent details, POV and composition. I love to see this kind of scenery here too. Like I said before, I'm very surprised to see that your country looks like ours in many ways :) Thanks,

Hi Pablo,
Icefall as in "waterfall"; isn't it?
The picture shows not only the size and shape of the ice formation but also the special kind of beauty it conveys.
There is a light tinge of green on the thicker formations, but the strength of the appeal lies in the contrasts between the white of the ice and the dark of the exposed earth.
On a bright sunny day, it would certainly reveal a totally different aspect of its beauty.
I was thinking of the notorious Khumbu Icefall that climbers have to negotiate first thing in their ascent of Mt. Everest from the base camp on the Nepalese side.
I have seen the bugger thrice :-)!
TFS and take care.

Hi Paplo,
Sun or not this is beautifull. I like the different colors of pale greens and blues that are in the ice.
Well done and TFS

Hi Pablo,
that's a great Spectacle of Nature and I love the blue colour so much - turquoise!
We had not much chance to see things like this this winter, not so cold, not much snow, it was horrible, only grey and nothing worth to go outside to have a look at.
Thanks and greetings

Hi Pablo. Amazing to see such a frozen waterfall like this. Very dramatic with excellent clarity. My goodness spring must be something you look forward to very much!. Murray.

How familiar Pablo! When I run into town I see iceflows like this cascading off the rockwalls where the road has been cut.
The photo is very realistic! Good colour-mood, good PoV! Tfs. J.

Hello Pablo,
Very nice landscape picture. I like the pov and composition. This wonder of nature is beautiful as it is. Mountain ridges and ice forms are marvelous and pleasure to see. TFS this impressive picture.

Hi Pablo,
Amazing frozen fall....
Greatly captured, very nice angle
Great shot.

Ben Lakitan

It's a wonderful icy shot - very well composed.

Hi Pablo,
An excellent landscape composition. Now that has to be pretty darn cold to freeze up like that. I agree the gray day has caused some poor lighting conditions, but you have made the best of what was available. I bet that would look great with blue skies and direct sunlight on it.

Hi Pablo,
Nice icefall. Nicely seen and captured.

Hello Pablo !
Wow, what an impressive sight ! These ice falls look very impressive, I wish I could see something like that in my own country ! :-) Great exposure on the ice and snow, beautiful greyish colors, so typical in winter. I love your POV and your composition. Very well done !

Your ice-fall looks like jade crystals. Good greenish shade that makes the picture modestly, but well colored.

Hi Pablo

This is a scene we rarely see in the UK apart from the Scottish Highlands. The ice is stunning.Even with the dull sky the ice still glows blue/green - which makes the shot. The weather also conveys the sense of cold. James

Chez nous le printemps revient. Aujourd'hui on prévoit 17°
Bonne journée.

Sunshine, no show. Well, you could always say that this is northern exposure! Sun or not, this is a stunning shot.

hello Pablo

good POV for this wonderful picture of the frozen fall.
in my town it never freezes this one of the reason why I find this picture amazing+



Hi Pablo,

A good POV of the iced falls, the photo has a good composition, sharpness and nice colors. Thanks for sharing.


Hello Pablo. The frozen fall looks like stalactites in the cave. Sharp details of the texture with beautiful framing. I like the leafless trees at the top and the peek of the moody sky. Well done and TFS. warmest regards. Jusni
