Ice Chunks in the Canal

This was a novelty to me, seeing a bunch of ice chunks flowing through the Canal from the Bay.  These pics aren't very good because it was high tide and most of the ice was closer to the other side.

  1. Pretty. I love the one of the reflection of the bridge.

  2. Ice in the river reminds me of a song by Gordon Lightfoot. I too, like the reflection of the bridge in water. It has an eerie distortion to it.

  3. These pics aren't that good? SHUT UP! OMG they're amazing. Wish I could have seen that in person. It looks very Alaska/glacier to me, at least from what we saw in Juneau.

    1. I'm sure Alaska was 100x more impressive than these! lol Thanks! I'd heard that there were big chunks out in the bay but I didn't feel like driving to the areas to see them.

  4. They remind me of the Titanic. "Iceberg right ahead!" only on a much smaller scale. Brrrrr!! ♥

  5. As cold as it's been, they probably won't be the last you'll see!!!

    1. I know! It's crazy cold. If I do see them again I'll get pics from a higher level. If it wasn't so cold I would have walked up onto the bridge but that icy wind would cut you in half.

  6. All those people who thought what was going on was global warming and welcomed it, I wonder if they are now too stupid to realise that climate change is a total mess-up of everything. Chunks of the south west of England have been underwater for 6 weeks now, and the Met Office has only just suggested climate change might be to blame.

    1. It amazes me that people still think 'global warming' either isn't happening or they don't understand that what it means is a climate and weather change. I heard about SW England and the monstrous storms and waves. Every storm is bad.

  7. I beg to differ. These are great pictures.
    Stay warm and safe over there, JoJo.

    1. Thank you so much. I didn't even deem these pics Facebook-worthy! I never even posted them there.

  9. These make me feel cold. I live in Singapore, where ther's no snow and ice. Gorgeous photos though. Stopping by via Tina's blog to say hi and congratulate you on making it to her team!

  11. Ice is a great subject for taking pictures. I love the shots of the random snow chunks.
