It was 35 degrees out and too cold for my wimpy Texas girl butt. But it had snowed earlier in the week and I was hoping for some neat photos. I pretty much had my wide angle lens (Sigma 10-20) on the entire time. I REALLY need to practice my eye for landscape, but there were a few I will not hang my head in shame about.
Thank goodness the scenery was just so beautiful and there were a ton of interesting things, because relying on my ability to put a shot together in this genre would not cut it.
The icicles…oh…the icicles.
I think the icicles were worth my loss of feeling in my toes for a few hours.
These icicles were as tall as me. I am not laying down or squatting to get these shots. These cliffs are pretty big. I will have a couple more shots tomorrow to share.
In case you were wondering, this is Giant City Park State Park. It is actually a part of the Shawnee National Forest, too. It is minutes from my house and every time I go there I wonder why I don’t go more often. This park is the whole reason I wanted a wide angle lens.
