Default Winter Ohio River sunset.

Our "Blizzard" of 2016 here was a whopping quarter inch of snow, just enough to put a light coat on everything. This is from last week before the river melted fully with this week's warm weather.

I like the three layers and flow of the image

I like the color and the difference in water ripple. Very nice.

Thanks guys. Since I've moved up here a few years ago I've been intrigued by the frozen-over river (just a few miles south in Pittsburgh it doesn't really). The shots I've taken have always been really uninteresting snaps of a featureless white plane, though. Here it was frozen but not all the way, and I think the sunset did some really neat things to the color of the snow-covered areas.

The different elements make this shot interesting. I like the pattern of the ice against the water, the pink hue of the sunset reflected by the ice, and the single bird in the lower right corner.

I agree with Steven.

Thanks Steven! One thing I'm trying to work on is how sometimes (most of the time?) less is more. I had one shot of several birds just to the left of this shot--this one just looks less cluttered and brings your attention from the bird eventually to the snow and ice textures and color. Thank you, I'm glad it worked a little.

Thank you Marcelo. This time of year and weather kind of takes me out of the mood to go out and shoot, the day I took this was a very nice day though and reminded me that maybe I should try it more often.
