Oil City Ice Tunnel

A photographer friend and I went into an old railroad tunnel in the birthplace of oil, Oil City, PA, to photograph the ice formations made by perfect weather conditions where slight melting then freezing consistently happens for several weeks. The tunnel is collapsed not far in. We are standing on 2 feet of frozen ice and the temperature was -16 to -20 that day.
