Photo 17: Waterfall
Shutter Speed: 1/1600
There's a lot of things going on here. You've got the clash of solid and liquid; water and ice. Rapid fluidity and static frozen stone. So what temperature is it? I don't really understand water falls in the winter. But northern Michigan's Lake Tahquamenon defies the chilling norms of below freezing.
The water almost looks like glass. Like transparent gold. That's what I love most about this image. Even though you have foam from the splash, the right side of the water looks almost texturized to be solid rock. At least that's what I think.
Cool to keep in mind, all that splashing does end up on the snow, giving it a really cool soft pillow texture as well. This part of the upper peninsula is a really cool part of Michigan and the Midwest. Utterly unique. 10 out of 10, would photograph again.
Also the opportunity to throw up my shutter speed is really fun. Freeze frame!
