Caption: As I am taking photos, I hear this noise up river. “Hum”, says I. Then about an acre of ice starts heading right for me. It was so big I thought I was moving! Well I’m not too worried, I am behind this enormous log. That’s when the cracking started. Right before my eyes the huge log bursts in half and starts coming right for my light stand! Arrgggghhh! Quick like a bunny I grabbed the light stand and yank it out of the water. But I am still a photographer, so the whole time I am doing this, I keep my finger on the shutter button and have an entire series of photos taken while the log is breaking up! I made a short movie out of it but I don't know how to upload a movie Very exciting.

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
