Frozen in Motion

The water in the Big Thompson dropped about a foot in the past week, leaving shelves of ice on the banks and rocks in the river. In some places, like this one, the splashing water has caused icicles to form on the bottom of the shelves.

 

Prompted by a forecast calling for 50% cloud cover and no wind, I headed in to RMNP this morning for sunrise. Not a cloud in sight and bitterly cold winds throughout the entire hike. Oh joy! I might be posting a shot from sunrise later in the week if I can make anything interesting out of them despite the boring sky.
