Hanging Lakes is a popular attraction just off Interstate 70 east of Glenwood Springs in Glenwood Canyon, Colorado. It is a short but steep hike to some small waterfalls and colorful pools. In the Summer, there can be quite a crowd at the small lakes, but in Winter, thanks to deep snow and ice on the steep trail, you can usually have the place to yourself. I took this shot as part of a collection of photos of frozen Colorado waterfalls. I was particularly attracted to the vertical lines of the icicles and opposing horizontals in the reflection, along with the dripping water. I used a telephoto to zoom in on the pattern and a relatively fast exposure to get some of the detail in the dripping water. I just wished I had a dry-suit so that I could wade out amongst all those icicles! ~ Stanley Rose

    What a delightful surprise! I have hiked to Hanging Lakes many times but have never seen it like this. Your photos take me back home, sweet Colorado. So miss you.
