Idaho, east, Palisades Creek in winter in the Snake River Mountains. Ice flows create turquoise colors and patterns among the rapids under snow and horfrost covered trees and brush. When winter temperatures reach well below zero in the Snake River Mountains of east Idaho, this fast flowing creek develops a unique ethereal beauty. As ice builds on the rocks and creek bed, the water takes on brilliant turquoise blue hues as it flows over the frozen textures and shapes. An excellent environment for depicting winter enchantment.
