Default I thought it would be a good idea to go down

and take a picture of the sunrise over the frozen Ohio River, on my way to work. The river freezing all the way across is an extreme rarity.

Of course I didn't account for the fact that when I got down to water level the termp (accdg to my car) was seventeen degrees below zero. I guess I'm just not that dedicated, because I took one solitary frame and got the heck back into my car.

I took some more this afternoon when it was a more reasonable temperature, but haven't really looked at them much yet. More interesting compositions but of course not as good of light. It's easier to get a nicely balanced frame when you're not worried about your fingers freezing to the hunk of metal you're stupidly holding in your bare hands.

Ha I was just thinking about how you New Englanders and Canadians must think I'm quite the wuss.

Good job on that photograph. The glow of the sky adds a hint of warmth to the frozen scene.

(FYI ...I am a proud winter wus. I freely admit that I do not go outdoors if the temperature drops below 60F.) LOL

Nice shot, I love the colors and reflection on the ice.
