Bad Photography Saturday: In Search of Ice

We had a few days of single digit temperatures recently, and I thought some pictures of an ice covered Lackawanna River would be nice.  I had a few minutes to spare between the dentist, shopping and a visit to the bank.  I swung my car toward Mayfield, and this is what I found at Poplar Street.  There was some ice on the spillway at the start of the flood control project, but that was it.
The river was moving too fast to freeze over, and that's unfortunate.  There are few things as pretty as an ice covered stream.

The top picture is the view looking upstream.  Downstream is at the bottom.
