Susquehanna River Bottom

Today a few members of the Baltimore Camera Club and myself went in search of the beautiful skim ice that forms along the river when the water is low and there are freezing temperatures. Both variables must happen in order for the ice to be there. I was watching the outside temp in the car on the way up thinking it was just too warm and in deed it was. The little pools of water along the rivers edge were liquid, with a few isolated exceptions. So after a very pretty sunrise I focused my attention on the amazing rocks on the river bottom which are usually not even visible. Water is so amazing as it carves and carries rock. The scene is basically a gray one once the sun is up, but it lends itself to beautiful black and white conversions in the early morning light. So after getting back home I worked some of the river images in Nik SilverEfexPro.
