In the Ice Cave
I journeyed into this ice cave along Shays Run in Blackwater Falls State Park looking for a new perspective on an area that I have photographed many times over. I was so impressed witht the glow of light coming through the ice wall and the thin layer of froast and ice on the rocks and walls that I had to get my workshop group into this cave. I have a big group of 10 folks and had to bring them in two at a time due to the limited space of the interior of the cave. In order to reach this location, we had to climb down a stepe bank, cross a partially frozen stream and then an ice bridge with about three feet of show lying on top of it. I t was worth all of the effort and this was the highlight of today’s field session.
Look out for my Notes from the field: West Virginia Winter post in the next few days!

I will be there to guide you to the best spots, help with any technical questions, critique images and get those creative juices flowing. We may also have a chance to visit Crainsville Sub Arctic Swamp and a special are known as the bears den. This workshop starts at sunrise and ends at sunset.
