#79 the big thaw is here

079/365 the big thaw is here, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Today’s Daily Shoot assignment got me out to look for liquids.

Liquids can be still and reflective or in motion and chaotic. Make a photograph of something liquid today.

It is also officially the first day of spring today with the vernal equinox, so I celebrated it by taking an evening walk to the riverside. The temperature has been above zero for two days, so I could enjoy seeing the fast disappearing snow and ice, and in the warm colours of the setting sun, too.

Water in its 3 forms is present in this picture – liquid, snow and ice. It seems that the the river is finally getting free from its frozen winter prison. I don’t think it will be safe much longer to walk across the ice – hence the warning barriers. But the thawing ice does provide huge liquid mirrors, which beautifully reflect the surroundings. No motion or chaos here, but very still and calm water everywhere. All the boats are motionless, too, waiting like sleeping beauties to be woken up in spring for their busy summer season.

I took a whole set of pictures during my evening walk.

#47 digging into the Middle Ages

Passed this bit of colour by the riverside today, on another totally frosted over white day. Even the pedestrian seems to blend right into the surroundings with her outdoor clothes.

The colourful huts and signs are for archeologists,who have got a rare chance to do valuable city excavations as a long abandoned historical restaurant will be restored and reopened close by. They are looking into medieval structures underground, in the hope of locating some houses and jetties, among other things. Who knows what ‘skeletons’ they will find hidden away.
