A couple of days before the arrival of spring we stopped at Amnicon Falls to check on ice conditions. The ice was still around but was breaking up. As we walked around the trails every once in a while the ground would shake and we would hear a loud bang. At first we thought it was someone dynamiting but it turned out that the river was washing away at the ice on the surface and every once in a while a large chunk would collapse causing the vibration and sound.

I couldn’t resist taking some intimate photos of the tannin colored water, ice and snow at Amnicon Falls State Park.

In mid November I stopped at Amnicon Falls State Park. It has been snowing most of the week so I expected to get some black and white photos with the dark trees and white snow. As it turned out the tannin colored waters and snow created some beautiful colors so I stuck with color photography for the day.

People sometimes ask me why I keep going back to the same places to photograph. This day reminded me why. I don’t recall ever seeing Amnicon Falls with as much tannin colored snow and ice. It was a beautiful visit.
