Breathtaking!! I'd risk the cold fingers for a shot like many photos of Bridal Veil Falls but haven't seen anything like this.

Spectacular photograph Peter. Truly unique perspective. A real joy to study. Thanks for sharing.....
@CreativeIsland replied: The hardest part of photography is coming up with new and interesting ways to see the world. Thanks for the comment, Jenny.

A true Photographer does what it takes to "get that shot"! : ) So glad you did......such an amazing photo! I really like the clarity of the water and seeing the ice formation above and under the water. Wonderful Peter....thanks for sharing!!!
@CreativeIsland replied: Thanks, Pam. There's a whole new world below the water line. This was my first attempt at dunking my new waterproof camera. It took some nerve to actually do it.

Hi Peter..what some people do for a photo...very nice
@CreativeIsland replied: Thanks, Ramona. It was a small sacrifice. I'm not much of a swimmer, but ever since being a child when I saw the Don Knotts movie where he turned into a fish, I've been fascinated with the views underwater. I hope to post some more.

Cold fingers but an extremely cool shot. Peter, I like how the underwater part of the image is so important to the overall image. I need a camera like that for the salmon runs!
@CreativeIsland replied: Thanks, Laura. I just got this camera - a small Olympus point and shoot and I've been experimenting with some underwater photography. I can't wait for the fish to run here. I have some plans to sink my camera to the bottom and shoot from there.

a very interesting angle, Peter! very nice tones and comp!
I was there 1 week before you.. a huge difference.. I should try to get there when you are there. You could give me some tip on how to photograph the 'bridal Veil' I am never happy with the results....
not only I saw a moth, but yesterday and today I saw a Blue Heron... :-)
@CreativeIsland replied: Thanks, Marthe. The ice conditions are changing daily with this warm weather. The lighting at the falls is always tricky. On some visits I've taken over a hundred shots only to trash them all later because I wasn't happy with the light.

Well worth the cold fingers!
@CreativeIsland replied: I agree. Thanks, Rob.

A Big WOW! Absolutely stunning, Peter. So much to absorb with this image.
@CreativeIsland replied: Thanks, Ken. Much appreciated.

Every winter I try to make at least one trip to Bridal Veil Falls on Manitoulin Island to see the ice features. This year the falls seemed to freeze solid - the curtain of ice so thick as to be almost impassable behind the falls.

This shot was taken just over a week ago and you can see the ice wall breaking up and the water beginning to flow again. I have a waterproof camera that I partially submerged in order to capture this perspective. I ended up with some very cold fingers!
