Open water in February along the lower river.
Seeps from a cliff form odd shapes.
Frozen textures on a swift, spring fed creek.
Early season ice captures a lily pad and air bubbles on a pond in Crex Meadows.
Pancake ice swirls in a canyon along the Apple River.
Ice jams after the March thaw in the dalles, much as felled pine boles did decades prior.
Strange ice crystals form near a mineral seep on the Kettle River.
At the head of a secret gorge, water drips, swirls and freezes.
Monotone during the winter days, a frozen backwater shines at sunset behind unfocused arcs of reeds.
