The snowflakes really suit this photo. The edges of the river with the breaking ice is a suitable border for the “Jack Frost” painting. Interesting how the frost is not up the hill, but all at river level (where the moisture is, I suppose).
There is a little road at the base of the hills beyond the river and I sometimes hike there in winter. It’s a pretty place to hike when the higher roads are blocked by snow and I can’t get to the trails.
I’ve never fished that part of the river. It requires a special reservation permit and I usually don’t buy one. I’ve heard that there is good fishing farther up the river and sometimes at the mouth of it.
I’m always entranced by scenes that come by their sepia tones naturally. This is just gorgeous. The low fog you mentioned often is responsible for the frost that we get. It’s just as pretty as yours, even if the scenery isn’t!
I used to drive past that place every day on my way to work, before I started taking a lot of pictures. Some days there was so much frost on everything it was just beautiful. Hope I see those conditions again!
Yes, the snow wouldn’t fit in well with your scenery! I watched the Miami game yesterday and they said it was 84. Last weekend here the University of Montana played a game and it was -5 at kickoff time.
