Esplanade's Frozen Shallow

Owed To Nature

Boston, United States

Artist's Description

As the first day of arctic wind pushes the Charles downriver, its southern edge squeezes into the Storrow Lagoon, dooming the warmth of fast flowing water to a losing battle with the slush and ice of the protected shallows. One day later, arctic air still whips sub-zero wind chills and the river all but gives up its fight, lying still as ice stretching from shore to shore.
