Hudson River Ice Breakup Photos

We got to the river at the perfect time, as the accumulated ice from the long, cold winter was really starting to break up! There’s a fantastic mix of water, ice flows, smaller chunks, and thinner, clear, sharp angled slabs.

The first photo is of the Hudson River ice near the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge…

This second photo is all water and ice….

You can really see all the shades, angles, and sparkles in the larger version – just click the image for the larger version and to purchase prints – that goes for all of these photos.

The last photo in this little group is the ice flowing downstream. It was making all sorts of splashing, creaking, and clunking noises – I still have to check to see if the video picked up all the neat audio though, so that might have to wait for a later post.

Seagulls On Ice

John and I found a great spot to take photos of the frozen Hudson River the other day. Here’s the first one – Seagulls on Ice! (Nothing like Pigs in Space, but you’re certainly free to say it like that if you like.)

I’ve never really seen seagulls hanging around on ice floes before, usually just sandy beaches and fast food parking lots.  In this shot, I especially like the pointy, glass-like shards of ice you can see floating in the background.

Icy Winter Waterfalls

A few days ago we stopped by a local waterfall. It was surrounded by snow and frozen over in parts – just really beautiful!

In the first image, I love the icicles of course, but also the deep midnight blue of the water and the brown rocks.  In the second image, I especially like the big gush of water with the frozen boulder contrasting in front of it.

The day I took these photos was one of the first recent days we’ve had where the temperatures were above freezing – this is how we celebrated – LOL!

Zentangle Ribbons Mixed Media Fine Art

I just finished this one – a zentangle drawing against an abstract watercolor painting background. I called it “Zentangle Ribbons” because there are two-sided ribbons twisting through the piece, creating a subtle structure for the diverse shapes and textures in each area. More importantly, though, this was really fun to make! :)

I’ve adapted this piece for prints and products on a number of sites – feel free to browse!
