Like a baby bird slowly going out from its egg, the new water wants to see the world..

I love to hear the pop and crack. Beautiful photo.

Really! This is awfully early. It will probably re-freeze again.

My mother lived on Lake Winnepausaukee and the people up there took bets on when the ice would crack. I think it was usually in APRIL!

For some reason I immediately thought of Siddhartha on the river's edge at the end of the Hesse novel. Your river is quite a bit colder, I'm sure, but it reminds us that we can never step into the same river twice.

This is a technicolor dream... stay warm!

It's probably saying, "Finally some sunshine... it's about time!" I love this shot with the strong reflective backlight.

I love the way the clouds and ice sheets mirror each other.

The sky and clouds are beautiful and provide a delightful "cap" for the photo.
