Ice Break-up

Peace River Break-up at Fort Vermilion, Alberta
Peace River Break-up at Fort Vermilion, Alberta

A spring shot – ice break-up on the Peace River at Fort Vermilion. The river banks span almost one kilometre – the telephoto lens has compressed the distance making the river look quite skinny. Pieces of ice floating by are often as big as a half-ton truck. It should be noted (as you can see in the picture) that the ice and water came within a metre of cresting the river bank and flooding the area.

Quote to Consider / Inspire – ‘No place is boring if you’ve had a good night’s sleep and have a pocket full of unexposed film.’ – Robert Adams

Listening to – Paul Gross singing a ‘Due South’ tune, ‘Ride Forever’ and his ‘Fraser / Inuit Soliloquy.’
