2014, Day 23 - Crunchy

When I've gone to Panther Creek before and climb down to photograph the falls at eye-level I tend to take the pictures with a landscape orientation.  It is a wide series of falls and because of trees and the slippery nature of the wet moss it can be difficult to get the right distance from the falls and keep out of the spray.  Fortunately with the mossy ground frozen over and rather slick I had to move slowly and it allowed me more time than I would usually take to find compositions that I liked.  This one I enjoy because of the fallen tree and the lush greens in the foreground with the darker richer greens in the trees above.  I can still hear the crunch and snap of the icy carpet under my feet.
