Salut Pierre,
C'est une très belle composition avec une bonne maitrise de l'exposition. C'est une sorte de photo que l'on ne voit pas souvent, bravo!

This reminds me a bit of the Glacier National Park in Montana which is not too far south by the way. I have traveled through it in the dead of winter and everything there is frozen in the white of coldest winter. A very nice image of latent energy due to cold:-) It shall become kinetic again one day...perhaps too soon.

Hello Pierre,
This is amazing!
Scenery looks like a river that is frozen to the bottom...
Ice and snow is well exposed, fine details and no overexposure and the situation is well framed!

Very sharp and clear shot, good framing and beautiful
Best wishes,

Hello Pierre

A neat look at a frozen in time waterfall.
The detail and colour is very good.
it stirs the imagination to look at this old icefield.
Very good POV.


Hi Pierre, that is an amazing rush of water. I don't think I've ever seen anything like this, with a river flowing over ice like this. This is an awesome composition. This had to be tricky setting up (and maybe a little dangerous). The colour is good, I thought it might need a little contrast to see the water flow better so I've created a workshop to provide you with another option.

Thanks, John

Hi Pierre. I lke this series very much. It shows the power of nature and yet the fragility of it as we are begining to comprehend. This ice fall may diminish in the years ahead. Beautiful capture. TFS. Murray.
