Great Falls in Hamilton, Ontario. It was a touch descent to get to this location at the bottom trying to carry my tripod and camera while climbing down and over the rocks. The trouble was going back up was even tougher.

I love this in the black and white John. I think it allows the beautiful textures of the ice and of the rocks to stand out so pretty. The ice formation is just so fascinating to see and how it formed. It also brings out how cold it can get. Such a gorgeous look John. #11671287

Great work with the black and white. What Frank said, brings out the beautiful textures. Love the perspective, too. #11671299
