Ice Wall

I did not take this picture recently (actually back in 2005) but with the cold weather we have been having, it made me think of it and pull it from my archives. Taken up on Mt Hood, the conditions that year were just right where it had not snowed enough to keep us from hiking up to a waterfall we know of. There was this wall of icicles. Something that normally you would not be able to get to since the snow at this steep location reaches 10 ft or more. But something told me that day to go check it out, and I am glad I did!


  1. Wow! That is really incredible. Definitely worth bringing this one out from the archives! I've never seen so many icicles at once. You captured it really well.

  2. Very cool!

    It looks like something out of an abominable snowman movie or something.

    It's probably safe to assume that this piece of landscape faced north.

  3. One heck of a picture!

    I hope you don't mind me taking the easy route by copying and pasting this comment, it is by far the easiest method of getting my message to so many CDP photobloggers.
    I am not sure that I can sustain South Shields Daily Photo much longer, it is so difficult to keep finding new material on a daily basis,
    and after more than two years inspiration and motivation are becoming harder to find, so I may become less daily from time to time.
    I hope you can find new hope and inspiration, and that a new start in 2009 brings everything that you desire.
    The CDP photoblogging community has grown massively over the past year and I'd like to thank those who have visited South Shields Daily Photo, especially those who have been kind enough to leave a comment or two.
    Best wishes for 2008
