Geese Under the Flume

A couple months ago I hiked down to photograph one of the several flumes that follow the Truckee River through the canyon between Truckee and Verdi.  During the winter after many very cold days the water that continually leaks out freezes into incredible icicles and ice sculptures.   For years I have driven by on my way up or down the hill and finally I decided to hike down and photograph them.  My main goal was to photograph the flume and the ice, but as I was photographing I saw these two Canadian Geese wonder buy.
