Open Water

Yesterday I noticed the ice was breaking up on the Cannon River above the dam, and this morning we had open water for the first time in many weeks. The slushy snowfall won't stay with us long, but it was pretty on the trees this morning. Above, a lone mallard surveys the scene.

I never tire of this scene, looking north to Ames Mill and the Fourth Street Bridge from the Water Street parking lot. I rotate out a seasonal photo of this view at the top of my sidebar, as I feel it is an iconic view of Northfield. I'll have to add this one to the mix.
