The big freeze

Keeping in the feel of the moment, I thought I would post of few pictures from the Delaware Bay. Two tide cycles had passed by the time I took these shots. The broken or uneven ice is from the water freezing at high tide then collapsing when it receded. The ice will fall around the clumps of reed or obstacles during low tide then repeat the cycle adding more ice to the area. I love how ice encapsulates whatever the waves wash over.

I hope everyone affected by these record low temps are staying warm and cozy with their favorite snuggle bug. Enjoy the pictures while your toes are toasty.

      For sure! The wind chill coming across the bay was like no other. But, on the bright side, weather channel is saying it will be 58 next week lol

  2. Thankfully, it looks as if the vortex has gone back north, where it belongs. Enjoy the return of mild weather.

    Wow, that is serious cold! We’ve been spared so far in the Pacific northwest, but next week we’ll have below freezing temperatures, which doesn’t happen often here. You took some great photos – what a gallery!
