    Great shot Gary, love it in B&W. Did you take it this year. I haven’t been out to brave to cold, must try to get back there soon…Jules

  • Thanks Jules! I grabbed Heather and the camera 2 weeks ago and dragged her out there. I was hoping for some icycles hanging but it was too warm :(
    I walked out into the middle of the river for a shot though :D

  • Thanks for having it Chris! I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate for the group as it doesn’t burn fossil fuels but it does roll across the ground :D
