Snow

Winter Wonderland by Dennis Bernhard

Frozen Cummins Falls

Frozen Cummins Falls

At the end of a beautiful but cold and wet hike, you get this amazing reward. A winter wonderland of ice and snow. Of flowing water over ledges and levels. Of swirling pools and rocks.

This photo zooms in on the upper portion of the falls. I like how the vertical orientation aligns with the flow of the water and allows you to get a better look at how the water freezes and clings to the rocks.

This photo is a zoom of the left side of the falls. I wanted to highlight this area because it gets less water fall and that allows the ice to accumulate more and have a different feel. 

These are my three favorite photos of the day. Let me know what you think.

MY PANTS FROZE!!!!! by Dennis Bernhard

We had a couple week long cold snap in Nashville which led to the waterfalls in the area freezing over. Cummins Falls is my favorite waterfall so when I heard it was frozen I had to go check it out. 

The hike in wasn't too bad, besides my pants freezing. All of the ice gave the fall and the surrounding area a winter wonderland feel.
