ICY COLD at the Falls!

This was the view of the falls from the road last Tuesday. It looks beautiful doesn't it? From this point of view you can't tell just how cold it is down by the water!

Brrr! Believe me when I say, "It was freezing down there by the waterfall!" My hands were burning from the cold, my teeth were chattering and I was shivering so badly, I could barely hold the camera still, when snapping the pictures! Andy held on to me so tightly, so I wouldn't slip on the icy rocks, but unfortunately he didn't have anyone holding on to him, as he slipped on his rear. His only other concern was to protect my zoom lens that he had in his hands at the time. Isn't that sweet of him to take care of me and my lens like that? This is why I love him so much!!!
This isn't snow in these pictures! This is the freezing mist from the waterfall! I wish I could express to you, just how cold that freezing mist was, as it was hitting our faces.
This picture should be a good illustration as to just how cold the freezing mist was! This wall of ice was formed as the freezing mist sprayed upon a branch. I'm shivering just thinking about it!
This is my honey! He is so wonderful to drive me around from place to place to take pictures, just for the sheer fact that he wants to spend time with me and because he knows how much I enjoy photography! He is truly my best friend and soulmate! We had such an awesome day together despite the cold!

  6. Those are so great! It was as beautiful as I thought it would be, but now I don't have to get cold and slip on the slick rocks to see it myself.

  9. The waterfalls are great. Could you possibly get a shot with low speed so that the water looks like painted? You are very lucky that Andy is driving you around!!!
