In Search of Icy Images
After a few more frigid days in Baltimore I was hopeful there would be some great skim ice in the Susquehanna State Park. A quick check of the Conowingo Dam water flow indicated the water had been stopped all night. But unfortunately by the time Tony and I arrived the water had been cut loose and was flowing fast and high. Oh and it was snowing, so that ruined the chances of getting any images in the pond as the snow had covered the surface of the ice. We made some images of the water with some ice skirts around rocks and edges by a small stream. I also made some images of the large Sycamore leaves filled with snow. After checking a few more shooting spots we decided to head to Loch Raven and see what there was to shoot there. After arriving we decided there was not much, but I made a few icy images in the marshy area while Tony worked the edges of the marsh with icy subjects. It was fun being out and enjoying some great conversation and reminisce about our good friend Barb.
