Flowing water

img_0842_960

We had a very rainy beginning to 2017 but ironically, as the assignment was announced, a picture of flowing water, the temperatures dropped to -9 (-21 with wind chill) yesterday. Today it was a mild -15. I intended to go photograph the “ice sheets” drifting down the river,  I even picked out a location yesterday and marveled at the sight which I was going to take pictures of today. And then in the morning I discovered that the river had frozen (almost) solid. Lessons learnt – if you have an idea and the conditions are right, don’t wait for them to get even better, as they might go away altogether!

But I’m happy with this image as well, especially thanks to the lovely pair of ducks.
