Back in the grip of Winter at least for today. The rest of the week looks pretty decent but for today not so much. I read somewhere that if people didn’t talk about the weather it would reduce conversation on the whole by nearly 60%. I’m sure we would find something to fill the void. 🙂
The images I have for you today were taken this past Saturday. The one above and just below were taken at the Dubuque Ice Harbor where the ice is still hanging on. The main channel of the river is free of ice now and I would imagine it won’t be long before barge traffic once again becomes prevalent.
We watched this little gull struggle with this small fish for sometime. He just couldn’t figure out how to devour it and finally we got tired of watching him fight with it.
We were going to take a walk on the river walk but with the breeze and the sun beginning to set it was pretty uncomfortable so we just opted to head for the restaurant and a more cozy environment.
I couldn’t figure out how to capture what I saw with this image of the moon. This is the best I could get but I’m not happy with it. I could see the full moon and just this small sliver of it was being reflected by the sun. I’m sure if it had been a little warmer and I’d had one less glass of wine I would have made a better image. 🙂
I’m going to have to do some reading about this because it was a beautiful moon Saturday evening I would like to give it a try the next time the moon is waxing crescent.
That’s all I have for you today. Enjoy your day and be careful.
