Business Man's Falls, aka Wells Falls, aka Van Vatta's Cascade in Ithaca, NY. In a few months this will be crowded with students taking a dip or a picnic. But on this day I had the place to myself, and I was able to walk across the ice to get this angle of the falls.
It has been a long time since I have posted anything here and this contest sounds great. Earlier this week I visited Tinker Falls and had a great time exploring behind the falls. Here is a shot of an interesting ice formation that looks like it belongs in a large cave system. I used a remote flash to create the highlighted effect. The sun shining through the ice gave it a fantastic aquamarine color.
Great shot Jody!
Some really great stuff this month. Unfortunately, too cold for me to participate. Maybe if I could add a little meat to my bony arse I could handle the cold.
To become truly immortal, a work of art must escape all human limits: logic and common sense will only interfere. But once these barriers are broken, it will enter the realms of childhood visions and dreams.

Jody, that's an awesome shot!! It's gone to the top of my list of potential winners this month.
Thanks David for inspiring me to get out to Lower Falls. I was tempted to go down the "goat trail" but since I have never viewed the falls from the RG&E side...I opted for that. I would not advise trying to walk closer to the falls from the bottom of the "goat trail". There is not much room between the steep walls and river from what I could see across the water. The RG&E side however was pretty easily accessible along the shoreline.

My cousin mentioned this site, He thought I would enjoy it and he was right. I had wanted to get out to Grimes Glenn in Naples N.Y. to take some shots... Picked the right time to do so as the creek was fairly frozen over and I was able to setup a tripod at the base of the falls.
