Early Ice by rvwalker

Early Ice

This is an SOOC photo of Bear Lake taken at Rainbow Cove, Utah. Several cold days have frozen the spray from small waves onto this little dead tree. The Wasatch Mountains on the other side of the lake are across the state line in Idaho.

Nice to see this one trending and on the PP. Thank you, everyone. I appreciate your comments and favs.
The detail of the iced branches is excellent and looks great against the rocks under the crystal clear water.

Fabulous capture. Nice composition with interest both in the foreground and background. Love the ice tree and the clarity throughout.

Ross, this is wildly cool (literally). Love the textures of the rocks, the expanse of the water and the funky shapes of the ice. Fav!

Just beautiful, Ross. I saw many nearly iced spots in southern Utah. Like a skim coat...
November 24th, 2013  
Nice.

@espyetta Thanks so much for the fav, MaryBeth. Bear Lake is a wonderful place for ice photos.

Lovely capture! I love the ice! I am not familiar with Rainbow Cove. Next time I go to Bear Lake I will have to try and visit there too!

@kbird61 Thanks, Kay. It is north of Cisco Beach on the east side. Look for a boat ramp sign.
November 24th, 2013  
@rvwalker Ok Ross! I know where Cisco Beach is! I now realize that the mountains are the ones to the west of the lake!
November 24th, 2013  
Wow...very cool!
November 24th, 2013  
Very interesting! Cool find Ross :)

I can only see it on iPhone, but it looks great ... and very cold. The clear water is wonderful.

@kwind @lily @beluga Thanks, ladies. Bear Lake is the gem of our valley, and I can always find something to enjoy there.
November 24th, 2013  
Fav!
Was this done with a polarizing filter?
Envious of the scenery you have .....

@ch1ppy_m1nton Thanks for the fav, Chippy. Bear Lake is a wonderful place. I find something new every time I explore there. No filters were used for this photo. The only thing I did a little differently was set the white balance to "shade", which warms up snow and ice a bit.

My eyes spotted the rock that looks like a mouth yelling for help. Great shot.
November 25th, 2013  
Fav for sure. Nice gore, middle, background, colors, tones
November 25th, 2013  
@tesssa Thanks, Tessa. I hadn't noticed that at all. Cool.
November 25th, 2013

Thanks for the fav, scs. And the compliment.
November 25th, 2013  
@karenmatthews Thank you, Karen. There is a boat dock here much like the one you posted a couple of days ago. Maybe the same one? I was tempted to try to duplicate your cool photo.
November 25th, 2013  
Oh wow...a lake you can see where you are stepping ...and turning into an icy pole. Nice line up
