Winterscape on River Road
January 24, 2011 - Marj Kline -- Toni Johnson
We (the Huz and I) were on our way to breakfast last Saturday, and thankfully he reminded me to grab my camera. We never did get breakfast, but I did take some really pretty pics on our road. It was really cold, boogey freezing weather I call it. You know the kind, you take one breath through your nose and everything burns and freezes at the same time. It was that kind of cold.
We stopped here (see ice-road.jpg), where the road rises and falls and goes 'round a small bend. You can't see any signs of civilization here, except for the road o'course.
This is the view across the river (see ice4.jpg). You can see the moisture rising from the open water. It was (I think) around 6 degrees that morning. Painfully cold.
The view heading south down the river (see ice3.jpg). The moisture settled on this side of the river, on Route 30's side there was nothing on the trees whatsoever. Just the way the wind was blowing. It was really pretty with the morning sun shining down.
Here is a closeup of the plants and what the moisture did to them (see ice2.jpg). Before getting out of the truck to take this pic I thought they were coated with a clear glaze of ice. Closer inspection showed spiky little crystals, though here it just looks like soft fluff. All I could compare it to was really bad freezer burn, or a freezer in serious need of defrosting. They were delicate little spikes that sparkled like diamonds in the sun. This camera just couldn't capture it.
