spring river life

After a long winter, it has been wonderful to step outside on mostly solid ground to look around and aim the camera at what I see. The river in the spring time always provides a fascinating landscape as the ice begins to thaw and move with the current. The banks overflow and spill out into the area that we call our backyard. Although it is not our property, we are able to have shared use of it with the neighborhood as our playground and nature study area.
This collection of photos is from this past week of river watching as it went from a silent solid mass to a gurgling liquid pool. River snails were left behind as the river receded in some areas and a recent sunset turned everything to gold as budding branches held on to large drops of rain.
We know how fortunate we are to have this view and we treasure it in each new season. Soon the buds will break open, bringing new life and color to this river area and I hope to be able to capture it to share with you.
