Icicles


ICICLES AND CHIMNEY, GLENWOOD SPRINGS, COLORADO, JANUARY 12, 2009

Many commercial buildings in Colorado have no gutters, meaning that icicles form easily on the edges of roofs, and some of them can grow so long (these were nearly three-footers) that they fall with a mighty clatter and imperil passersby below.

I saw these when upover in 2006 and loved them. Photographed a few and saw the warning signs beneath - but thought they looked fantastic.

Didn't see any as long as those ones though!

cheers
