I saw some pictures earlier this week of ice on the Barton Dam and I thought they looked pretty neat. Despite the temperature hovering around zero, I decided to head over there tonight. I am glad I did.
Parts of the Huron River had open water, but I think that had more to do with the flow of the water from the dam rather than the temperatures lately. It was good because there were some waterfowl in there. I did not bring my other lenses with me, so I could not get better pictures of them.
A pair of swans swimming around in the river.
The dam itself looked pretty neat. I was getting some of the light from the sunset too.
The water near the dam was smooth enough that I could get the reflections in the water.
The damn itself was frozen over. It looked pretty neat in person. I probably should have brought one of my other lenses so that I could get some close ups.
The power house.
This was probably my favorite angle of the dam because it showed the full expanse. I probably would have gotten the more straight out shot but the stairs looked fairly precarious.
Back to the power house. I wonder if they could ever get this running again.
I wanted to show the full expanse of the reflection in the water. I liked the ripples.

One of these days I would like to get a shot of the Wolverine passing by.
