Frozen Mississippi River

On the way back from our Ski trip (see last entry) we drove by the Mississippi River. It was frozen at places, and the ice was pushed up against each other. The sun was just setting down and bathed the whole area in this warm glow. I just could not pass up the opportunity to photograph this magnificent site. We were all tired, and son #2 was fast asleep on the back seat, but figured how could I pass up this golden moment? .....I stood right up against the guard rail in the snow while the cars were whizzing by scared to death that at any moment one of the cars will hit me, but I am glad I stopped and took these photographs....


  1. These are so beautiful! I loved hearing your story how you were able to capture them!!
