Before the Flood... The day this image was made turned out to be a flood where it was taken only an hour later in the town of Treasure Lake, DuBois PA 2013
Finding My Way...
This image was a tough one. I came to the location expecting hanging ice formations and they didnt show up. It was 30 degrees and my battery on the wireless remote failed. I had to go to the camera and trip the shutter that was on a 20 second self timer and scurry back to position on the ice, 25 feet away. My strobe didnt feel like cooperating with the timer and focusing was next to impossible. This was my final pick. Many photographers place themselves into scenarios like this from their desk utilizing PS. I prefer to suffer for the art of making the image, walking in 4 foot snow banks to get to the tunnel was part of it. It's the story I love. 2014
