Yes! I most definitely agree with Max....looks are deceiving!! This IS a beautiful view from the Platte!! Brrrrrr though!! Just don't like this prolonged frigid blast,,,not too bad in the day,but once the sun goes down,,feels like up North....just happy we aren't getting those 30-40 below factors.....oh my word!!

This is a nice view of the river, but I would rather see running water!! LOL I hate winter, could you tell?? Stay off the ice, Mike isn't near by to pull your almost frozen self out. 10 from cold SW Iowa

About LarryD


I really enjoy this site. The wonderful photos I see here never cease to amaze, and inspire me. I look forward to reading the comments on my photos. I am inordinately pleased when I am awarded an Approvers Choice. I use Nikon equipment and am especially fond of macro photography. I continue to be astounded by the beauty in the miniature world visible though my lens. Additionally, I rarely have to venture very far to find interesting subjects.The Henry Doorly zoo is my favorite location. If you get to Omaha Nebraska. I highly recommend you spend some time at the zoo with your camera. Larry
