Strange Icicles

The other day I was in the basement computer lab of one of the classroom buildings on campus and I happened to look out through the high windows and see this spectacular icicle formation. I don’t know exactly how it formed, but it looked like two series of vertebrae but in ice. It had formed on the bottom of a metal grate which covered a large drainage area. I returned the next day with my gear and, after enlisting some friends’ help, I climbed up and squeezed out through the small window into the drainage area. One of my friends followed suit to be my voice activated light stand (VALS) and hold my flash for me to better light this strange formation.

I shot this second one with black and white in mind and I think it turned out rather nicely.
