Cold and Stark


Walk along the frozen river. Where quiet set in like the fog. Nothing but the wind whistling through the trees.


Perhaps a bridge will lead us into the spring. With the promise of gentle breezes and soft blossoms.


Beyond the bridge, hope dissipates as the frozen river travels as far as the eye can see.

  1. What a sight! I imagine if it were completely frozen over that you could skate from one end to the other huh? OR would you run into the duck and geese airport and request clearance first? πŸ˜‰

  2. Lovely, serene B&Ws! I like how yours are more silver in tone than, well, I guess they could be. It brings a quiet sort of art to them. Props to you for braving the cold, the B&W surely does justice to the cold as well. πŸ˜‰

      I did step out of the car and slipped on black ice. Whoop ! Right on my butt. Thankfully I was holding on the car door handle so didn’t land hard. Promptly went back into the car vowed never to get out again. But then I hit this bridge, and of course I had to get out to get the shot. πŸ™‚

      • It’s so hard to choose sometimes between all the subtle shades. Good job with your final pick.

        Oh lord I’m glad you’re okay, falling on ice is no joke. Alas, I would have had to get out at the bridge too. πŸ˜‰
