Icicles have always been a hard thing for me to photograph… In order to capture the grand scale, you really need a wide angle lens. But you also need an interesting foreground object & you have to be close enough, not to look too far away (which usually means standing in the splash zone/water. If you take the shot using a zoom lens (like above) you get nice detail but sacrifice the “overall” shot/context. Anyway, I think the one above came out nice; it had this “superman’s home planet” look to it that I liked.
