    1. Thank you so much Jodi! Wolf went out earlier this week to take these photos of the ice. I couldn’t believe it when I saw them. They are so beautiful. I went down to the docks and stood there to see the ice myself and was completely mesmerized by the movement of the sheets of ice. They scrunch upon themselves and well, they’re just amazing.

    1. It’s very unique. I don’t know what the scientific reasons are for ice to look different, but since we live on the river we get to see several distinctive ice patterns each winter. I should look into that….

    1. Watching it float and fold in different patterns was lulling me into a strange mindset. My emotions were telling me that it was a warm, fuzzy blanket and the water was so quiet and soft. In reality of course, the water was freezing (and also dark and intimidating) under that layer of ice.

    1. This shot was taken along the Allegheny River in Pittsburgh, PA. (The city of Pittsburgh is surrounded by two rivers, the Allegheny and the Monongahela. Those two rivers come to a point at the tip of the city and form the mighty Ohio River.)


    2. No, it’s unfortunate that the rivers are polluted. I grew up an hour from Lake Erie and the pollution there is legend. There’s still beauty to be found even amidst the tragedy of what humans do to our resources.

  1. Amazing ice! It seems like it has something to do with the currents, perhaps? And if there are two systems coming together, that makes sense. The tugging this way and that. Just lovely! ๐Ÿ™‚
