WATER AND WINTER

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Winter – Water


The end of winter with ice on the canal
Just a small patch of snow not yet melted
Blackstone River in March as a very cold winter ends
And then comes summer …

    Good photos. Water in winter can often be ice.

      These were all taken in March, so melting was well underway by then. Otherwise, the river WOULD have been solid ice. That’s how come all the kids in this region play ice hockey. They wait for the water to freeze and they go out to play. But our river has a LOT of current, so it is never truly solidly frozen and terribly dangerous. There used to be a lot more deaths of kids who fell through the ice. This has been a good year: nobody drowned. It’s hard to keep the kids with skates from getting out there on the ice.

      Winter is beautiful. My problems are less to do with its beauty and a lot more to do with my getting old. I would as soon stay in a cozy house and wait for spring. BUT, sometimes, it’s too pretty to miss 😀

      Thank you. That melting down period really IS beautiful. Cold and muddy, but if you can get your boots on and go out into it, there are some amazing pictures to shoot.
