Missouri River in January

IMG_0220For this first post of 2015 I would like to share a picture taken from the shore of the Missouri River right outside of Bismarck, North Dakota.

While temperatures this day dropped below zero, with enough warm clothing I was able to stay toasty (except for my hands which I had to de-glove a few times to operate the camera).

Any cold I experienced was well worth it, to see the river in a transitory state during this time of year.  As seen in the photograph, the surface of the river was just beginning to freeze and ice floes bobbed there way down river.

It’s likely that in just a few short weeks, this entire stretch could be frozen over.

If I could make one photography related New Year’s resolution it would be to embrace the winter more and spend more days like this, walking around with a camera.

Camera: Canon Rebel T2iLens: 10-18mm
