Shot this icicle several years ago now, I was out walking looking for images and found a bush that had been sprayed with water from a burst pipe. The result was many icicles and probably 1 hour photographing them before the cold got to me. Standing still in freezing conditions is not friendly. This was the very best of the shots and still remains one of my favourite images to this day. I used extension tubes on a 50mm prime lens to get really close, my lens was probably about 30mm away.
