Ice Flows



Temperatures approached sixty degrees today, which felt like eighty after the weather we’ve been having 1. So I took the opportunity to throw a coat on Bump and head out for a photowalk. It was wonderful, I didn’t even need a jacket! Also cool was the haze down by the river, caused by the rapid evaporation of the melting ice.

I wanted to see what the River would look like as the ice flows would all be breaking up, and I was not disappointed. The Delaware was filled with chunks of ice, all moving downstream in lazy fashion. But the day held no wind, so the reflections off the water were as lovely as I’ve ever seen them. I’ve put up my ten favorite photos on my Flickr page, but my absolute favorite is below. I love the reflection of the ice flow in the water, and the way the dehaze filter was able to bring out the sky reflection as well.
