Frazil pans rippling through the Moberly Rapids during freeze-up on the Athabasca River, AB (Canada), November 7, 2004
I’ve been neglecting freeze-up lately – so I went searching in the archives and found this wonderful photo. Who would think the city of Fort McMurray is just behind us? It looks so wild and remote here. I especially like this picture because it captures the intense and beautiful colour contrasts we tend to see along Alberta rivers each fall – thanks to the low sun angle at this time of year.
