Waterfall behind a blue Ice Curtain

It's just a low slope over which the small stream falls before it flows into the reservoir. I was standing on relatively thick ice when I took these photos. The reservoir right behind me had an ice cover too, but I doubted that the ice could carry me, so I stayed close to the shore (see last photo).

The little waterfall itself is usually not impressive, but covered by the ice it looked cool and the closer I zoomed the more I liked what I saw - a little leaf, frozen in clear ice, and there was the one needle of a pine tree which looked somehow like a white feather.

The blue tone of the ice looked great - I didn't even need Photoshop to colorize the ice ;)
While the ice on the reservoir behind me had a more sunrise-like orangish tone, as you can see in the last photo, this ice curtain over the waterfall was nicely cool blue.

The ice on the reservoir behind me was a little bit to thin for me to walk on it, but the early morning sun painted it in a nice warm orange tone, what made an interesting contrast to the cool blue ice in front of me.

Another busy week is over and I hope the weather turns out nice enough to convince me to go out and take a photo or two :)


All 3 photos were taken with the Canon EOS R and my EF 70-200mm f/4 L lens.
If you are interested in the image data, I leave all EXIF and IPTC information stored in the pictures.

I hope you are all doing well and you take care for yourself and for the ones you love ... stay safe and stay healthy.
