Though the Bow River is not frozen over, I came across some nice formations along the river banks, where drift ice pile up ... here are some samples

Now that one is competing as my favorite! Can't decide which I like more.

Really like the textures in #1, but also like #3 for the soft aqua colouring, and the dof used. Very nicely done Matt

All really nice. My fave is the 3rd shot with the fin-shaped slab and the neat and numerous specular reflection bokeh.

I really like the textures in the first one.

Also in the last one, post #4. I like the blue-grey colour. A person just recently showed my camera club pictures he took on a trip to the Antarctic. Even though it is not a blue as the Antarctic pictures (apparently the light there has just an amazing blue colour), it kind of reminded me of them.

Thanks all, much appreciated. I like the way the sun plays with the ice, just very tough to capture at times. I guess one needs to get the old tripod out, screw on the ND filter and let 'er rip ....

These are all very cool Matt. I like that 3rd shot very much
