Ice, Ice Everywhere!

You may recall that our area was in the path of the “Bomb Cyclone” winter storm last week. Since then, we’ve had warm temperatures and most of the snow is gone.   There was quite a bit of ice on the river, though, and some of that still remains.

It made for some nice photo ops, and I’m sharing some of those pictures today.

Sunset, ice and a contrail Tuesday evening.

The setting sun was reflecting on a thawed area of the river, and some of “my” ducks were enjoying their little swimming hole.

Others were doing a bit of ice skating nearby.

The deer heard  there was a photo op and cooperated by paying a visit.

I took this short video yesterday morning just before sunrise. The roar you hear in the background is that of a work boat heading out to the James River.  There’s also some duck “chatter” with one rather boisterous one. I think he was demanding that I stop videoing and feed them breakfast corn.

 

Pretty scenery indeed, but is anyone else ready for spring?
