a few from Ralph Stover park

I visited Ralph Stover Park shortly after a few inches of fresh snow and got some nice shots.  This is a view from the pedestrian bridge that crosses the Tohickon creek.

 

 

Here’s the same bridge from the bank of the creek in monochrome and color.  I couldn’t decide which one I liked better, but I think the color shot highlights the ice in the creek. This was taken 5 or 6 days ago and it’s been unusually cold, so I imagine this is much more frozen at this point.

 

This bridge is the launch point for the whitewater event that happens in November and March that I mentioned in the prior post.

The new bridge in the foreground is the River Road bridge, recently reconstructed.  The bridge in the background is the Tohickon Creek Aqueduct, which carries the Delaware Canal OVER the Tohickon creek.  It seems kinda odd to build a bridge to carry a canal, but it’s certainly not the first time this has ever been done.  Tohickon creek is dammed and twice a year, the dam is opened for whitewater kayaking

While I was out and about the other day, working on my frostbite, I took a bunch more photos on the banks of the Delaware River.

 

 

How about someone’s old Heineken bottle?

Here’s a shot from the Rock Raven bridge in Lumberville, PA, taken today.  We’ve been below freezing for a couple of days and are not expected to get above freezing in the next week.  If I get a chance, I’ll return next weekend to see if the ice has progressed.  I think the windchill was around zero on that bridge, mighty chilly.
