This was a view I couldn’t pass up without photographing it. While I wish I would have been able to get one shot of this, I didn’t have the room to be able to capture the entire scene with the lens I had. Since I had a kit lens, but rarely ever used it, I decided that for this small walk I was going to force myself to use just this one lens. I had another in the bag as a backup but didn’t want to switch out. I was happy with the results from the kit lens but not too long after this I upgraded to FX so that lens will never get any more use unfortunately. Possibly when my oldest is able to handle a DSLR and she is still into photography, it might serve a good purpose for her.

Anyways, I love how throughout my entire walk you could never see below the ice until coming across this point. It was hard to tell, but I think this part of the ice was too thin to stand on, but one light enough might be able to make it.

  1. Gorgeous! It really is quite wild to see under the ice like that. I have only had that opportunity once or twice. The most memorable was on the Pacific Crest Trail just north of John Muir Pass, the lakes below were iced over as we walked through miles of snow in sun cups. When we got to the lakes edge, you could see through the ice to the bottom of the lake! It was both really eerie and exhilarating.
