A Real Photo Walk!

I’ve been longing to get out on a decent walk with my G7, but I’m just not designed to go walking around when the temperatures are in the teens. So I waited, and today I got the break I’d been waiting for. With temperatures reaching the 50’s, it was time to head out and see what I could see!

I decided to take my stroll down to Palmyra Nature Cove, and was so glad I did! The ice which had been filling the Delaware was in the process of breaking up under the unseasonable heat of the Winter Sun, and it was all flowing upstream as the tide rolled in. The noise it make was amazing, at times it sounded almost alive. The power these flows possess as they move is also humbling. At one point on my walk I had to cross over several patches of river ice which had managed to push up on to the narrow path which jets out along the cove. Then, when I reached the bridge which crosses the outlet and stopped to take pictures, several of the flows crashed into the bridge pilings – causing the structure to shake. The magnificent scenery, coupled with a lovely blue sky made for a wonderful afternoon. My favorite photo is below. To see the rest of favorites from this walk, check out my Adobe Portfolio.

  1. I love the color proportions here, the placement, the muddy shadows in the ice. 🙂
