Hi everyone, I took this one a couple of years ago, it was pretty cold that day. I had to come down and go back up those iced up stairs on the left, halfway down I was wondering what in the world am I doing here.

I hope you had snowboots or ice spikes on! This picture clearly shows the power of the water and the deceiving beauty of the ice. Good job.

Thanks Cal! I wish I had spikes that day! It was pretty scary, I have found that I don't bounce as good as I did when I was younger if I fall.

That's a nasty looking sight for two reasons, first It's cold and secondly I'ts headed in my direction.

Aloha, well done.

Wow Bob...this image really does show off the intensity and power of water especially with your use of perspective here. How on earth did you capture this image? It looks as though you were standing right in the middle of it all! Definitely a job well done!!

I just want to add that the B&W is used to excellent effect here. I like B&W a lot, but I never seem to visualize my color shots in B&W. This shot reminds me how much I'm missing by not adding to my list of questions, "Should this shot be in B&W?" Well done.

Thank you Selvin, StitchBabe and tclune!! I appreciate you guys! StitchBabe, there is a observation platform over this spillway that I was standing on to get the shot. I do have to admit looking down on that water did make me a little uneasy. Tclune, I am a very big fan of B/W photography, B/W is my favorite really!

Great capture, Bob (as always). It looks like some one opened the doors of the dam to release some water!

Hi Tullio! Thank you! Yes, they had the flood gates opened up pretty good on that day, believe it or not, I have seen times in the summer when you could wade across this river down below that bridge in the distance.

How lucky I am to see such beautiful shots in the Myriad forms one after another!
Yet, I can't dilute the significance of your photo, Bob..
Whatever I may say about power, dynamism, beauty of this image, there still will remain many unspoken words beneath them.
