How I love this... it reminds me of the frozen St.Lawrence seaway when we lived in Montreal and the rvers of my childhood.

Kate said...

Very interesting take on the scenery!

I can't believe it's a river. How cold is there, Brattcat? It certainly gives a blue feeling.

Great photo, made even greater by your comment!

Hilda said...

That's a river?? Amazing.

I don't think I ever want to experience weather this cold.

Kim said...

Queuing up Miles Davis "All Blues" for this one :-). I have little experience with running water that has frozen, so this is pretty amazing to see. Keep warm out there, and keep the toes and fingers cozy!

I'll be 'too blue' if they say it's a no go today. Should hear in a few hours.

Where does the white go when the snow has melted?...

Lumpy, bumpy and BRRRRRRRR!!

Sometimes when I take snow pics they turn out blue---is it the atmosphere? MB

Jacob said...

You do have a way with words; and with a camera.

Looks rather like a crusty blue moon.

"Gallop to the sea." That's beautiful, Brattcat!

Anya said...

Its here again snowing !!

Frank said...

Too, too cold. Frozen solid blue is more like it. This scene certainly defines your weather.

No frozen rivers await you here. 70 degrees by the weekend.

Oh, gee. I wonder when's the last time our river froze. Not in my tenture. . . . It's interesting how the ice is broken and choppy because it had to deal with the current while it froze. Or was broken up in the course of being frozen.

VP said...

That's some ice... and a river is still there! Creative monochromatic theme, wonderful image.

Rob and Mandy said...

Frozen enough to walk on the big blue? Must be awfully cold!

It looks like a miniature Himalaya seen from the plane. Lovely.

Amin said...

Interesting...

Cezar and Léia said...

I can imagine the current...
Very special shot!

This is a river? Oh my! Never seen anything like this.

Café Chick said...

What an incredible sight, frozen in time!

katztales said...

Pretty. Just like northern Soria in Spain in winter.

Paula said...

I love the coloration in your photos. It isn't that I mind more monochromatic palettes, I like them just fine, but deep colors and contrast are what I'm just naturally drawn to. I know I can always find something stunning here.

Bob Crowe said...

Like a glacier. No deep crevasses, I hope.

Amin said...

Is it a river or not Dear Friend? Beautiful picture..,

Lois said...

What a great shot! It looks so cold.

Amin said...

I agree It looks so cold.

JM said...

This looks like another planet! Beautiful!

Amin said...

I do not think it looks like to another planet....,,Because I have not seen any other planet...,
