Meanwhile, Up River… December 12, 2010

Saturday turned into a pretty nice day, with thin clouds interspersed with breaks of sun.  I left my sunrise shoot in Shelburne Falls and headed up river to enjoy the nascent winter scenery.

The Chickley river in West Charlemont was looking pristine, with its ice hummocks steeped in deep-green waters:

Its tributaries, cascading over ledge drops, built ice castles along the way:

I really dig the forms ice takes as streams plunge and burble their way toward the sea.

We have a lot of that around here, with our abundance of topographical relief, and our innumerable rivers and streams.  Be patient with me, as I’m in love with this stuff and bound to get repetitive as the winter rolls on.

Oh, that ice is so beautiful. Magical. Like its own little frozen world.

I think it is very brave to want to engage in that sport. It is, as you know, something I have never understood. When I look at Puffer’s Pond dam all frozen, it is very calming and almost holy. I guess I can relate to the “worship” part of your lovely post.

Happy Solstice, almost. And our Winter Solstice babe will soon be 22. Good work, mate! 🙂

Gina, you’ve done it again – commented below the fold, when you must have meant to be above it.

I know, it’s confusing, these different formats (yours and mine,) but I appreciate the sentiment none the less for its slight displacement.

I never expected you to understand my passion for climbing, but was always grateful that you allowed me that indulgence. It was a necessary thing for me, without which I would have died long ago.

And I can’t wait to see our little Solstice Star! 🙂
