Watery Wednesday - McCormick's Creek Falls: Changing with the Seasons

The following are a series of shots from the falls at McCormick's Creek Falls. As you can see the falls change rapidly from season to season and even within each season. Each visit the falls has something new to offer. Each of the following shots was taken from October through January in that order. As you can see the falls will freeze and unfreeze frequently and the water level is constantly changing.

Those are amazing falls shots. I've always enjoyed looking at the ones with ice built up in them. Thanks for sharing those.

Wow! Totally cool. There is always something surreal about a waterfall as it slowly turns into a frozen sculpture.

Icicles seems to be the theme of WW this week. But this post is absolutely spectacular. That frozen waterfall in the second picture especially is simply stunning against the brown rock. Such an interesting place.

Love the sequence! And the icicles! Even if I see enough of them out my own window, they are still lovely in the infinite variety.
Thanks for sharing!

These are a treat for a Florida Flatlander, our water usually just sits there, unless the wind is blowing! My well pump did freeze last night, but that is a rare occurence.
