More and more ice is finding its way south into the upper bay, slowing traffic down. I rode the SI ferry to get some photos of the conditions. I do not remember ever seeing this much ice in the harbor, it is quite a sight. Also this week I was able to catch some really nice color near Snug Harbor.

If you get a chance go out and see the ice. It’s best when the tide is flowing out.

Hope to get out and photograph more of the ice floes in the next few days.

Until next week… John Skelson
