Ice at Ringing Rocks County Park

This afternoon I went hiking at Ringing Rocks County Park near Upper Black Eddy, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. All of these pictures are taken from the same falls on this creek just at different angles and sections of the falls. It was a partly cloudy to cloudy afternoon.

The ice is amazing. I have never seen anything like that in real life. Gorgeous icicles and compositions.

I love frozen waterfalls. When I was a kid, I used to think it had to be magic. lol

So spectacular, Tim! I'm actually very glad to see it got cold enough for that. It needs to continue being cold for several more weeks!!!

Amazing, the weather is not so rude in Cergy, we are in the west part of Europe and so the weather is sweater. It's the same in California however our weather is not so sweet
I like the tree trunk stopped through the iced river

This is a great park in general, I live right near there. Don't forget the rock field when you visit!

Tim, I had a feeling that I was a poor man's Tim Rice when I post pictures of my "hiking expeditions" but I'm pretty sure that these lovely pictures just confirmed that. :-)

Thanks, photowannabe. The ice from this falls does have intricate beauty and formations!

Hi, kevin stilley. Shall we bring you up here to enjoy the beauty of the cold? :)

Thanks, choochoo. Frozen waterfalls are magical to the senses!

Thanks, ginnie. I'm actually enjoying the cold weather. Dress properly and the cold is exhilarating!

Thanks, kim's life. Frozen falls are gorgeous and pleasing to the eye.

Thanks, cergie. I think that tree trunk adds to the beauty of the frozen falls.

Thanks, ocean. Glad I could give you a new experience. It is even more fantastic and beautiful to see in person.

Thanks, marty. Ringing Rocks is a great park and the rock field is impressive.

Hi, murf. Your hiking photos were fun to see and enjoy, too. They were just in a different setting.

Thanks, deals on wheel. Yes, I think one can say that winter finally arrived although we haven't had any significant snowfalls yet.

If it was a little higher, you could go ice climbing!

Beautiful! We are told we might get a little ice in the morning but it will be nothing like that. ec

Ice is a wonderful thing. It is so beautiful. Although I imagine it's not good to have icy roads? It just doesn't get cold enough here to experience that. I hope you wrapped up warm!

Tim Rice said...

Hi, sage. You do have a point! :)

Thanks, mreddie. I'm sure these falls didn't ice up just over night either.

Thanks, shionge. I'm glad you find it so refreshing!

Thanks, sarad. I think frozen waterfalls always possess a certain majesty.

Thanks, san nakji. Glad you enjoyed these pics. The roads haven't been that icy though.
