Does it seem a little chilly in here to you?

icy waterfall in Hocking Hills State Park, Ohio, photographed by Dan Jenkins

VIRGINIA PHOTOGRAPHER DAN JENKINS was visiting Hocking Hills State Park in Ohio and took the short walk to the 90-foot-high waterfall at Ash Cave.  “I wasn’t sure what to expect,” he says.  “It was a drizzly day with temperatures in the 30s.  The rain was just letting up as I arrived.”  Jenkins found that the cold temperatures had frozen the base of the waterfall into a 20-foot-high chunk of ice, and the mist added to the surreal scene.  He used a Nikon D200 and a 12-24mm lens on a tripod.
