Here is a shot of ice on the Chicago River just below the Columbus Avenue Bridge. The temperatures here in the Midwest have plummeted in the past few days. The River is usually a good indicator of how cold it actually is; when it dips below freezing for more than two days, a sheet of ice forms on the surface, only to be broken up by passing barges. (The River remains navigable year-round). After another two days of subzero, the lake starts freezing up away from the shores. I trekked out to the beaches early this morning and I have some of those to post later this week... assuming my CF card isn't frozen into my camera.

Hi there,
I noticed today that you had commented on my mothers blog and I wanted to let you know that she has passed away. It was this weekend. I sent emails to a few people but, she had such a long list, I didn't know who was of any importance. If you have any questions or anything please feel free to email me.

I love the color of the water, Mike! It was cold enough this weekend for my batteries to die when I was out shooting. I guess we didn't miss winter this season after all.

I love shots where the scale is unclear. Nature's wonderful repetition.

This is really cool. No pun intended :p. The texture looks great and I like the colour of the water,
