We have been experiencing an extended cold spell. Our daytime highs have rarely exceeded the freezing point with the lows dipping into the single digits for nearly two weeks. It no longer takes a miracle for mere mortals to walk on water.
I recently hiked a couple of miles of a local creek. This was an opportunity to photograph places familiar to me from a different perspective.
A beautiful ice formation hangs from a small cliff along the creek
Some open water remains in the fast flowing riffles
Ice sculptures such as these are formed in fast flowing water
when the stream level falls during freeze up
The white bark of a lone sycamore contrast beautifully with the deep blue sky
