Bad Photography Sunday: The River

This is an amazing picture.

On the surface, it appears to be just a picture of the Lackawanna River at Olyphant, looking downstream.

Here's what makes it amazing.  I took this photo Thursday afternoon, at the tail end of the "dead of winter."  There's a light dusting of snow on the bank, but there is zero ice in the river.  There have been some winters when the Lackawanna has frozen over.  In most, there's at least some ice jutting out from along the shore.

Not this year, and that's amazing.
