Capturing incredible moments requires having your camera at the ready and being in the right spot at the right moment. NBC viewer Rachel E managed to have that perfect combination as she captured cascading tiles of ice breaking free and sliding from a roof in Grapevine, Texas a short distance from Dallas. It is unusual enough to have ice storms, but then to watch as heavy tiles of ice create a waterfall effect crashing to the ground caught people off-guard. The image is beautiful, but dangerous. Luckily, no one was underneath the edge of the roof when the ice broke free and started its slide to the ground.
As Rachel E learned, being able to capture a cool moment in history does not require the best equipment or training in photography. It just requires being ready and being in the right place.
