Blue Return


It was late March, and we’d had some warmer weather, some cold weather, and some stiff winds. The usual high water in the Red Cedar for this time of year caused the flow over the spillway to shoot into the air but not exceptionally. The low branches below the spillway along both sides of the river were decorated as if with molten glass. Even though the sun was crystal bright, the air was frozen, and the ice lasted well into the next days. This one is called Blue Return as it seems the ice is trying to return to the sunlight blue river.
