Another Snowy Morning

We woke up to a snowy morning, with snow sticking to the trees so I set out looking for photo opportunities. One of my first discoveries was this tree which still has some of last year's leaves. It was warming rapidly and the snow was already falling off the trees by the time I reached the Southville bridge from which I shot several photos of the river below. Several of the images, including this one, resemble satellite photos of the Earth from space.
The water has risen over much of the ice and only a few small patches of snow are above water. Like most of the rivers around here the water is brown from tannin which comes from leaves and other vegetation  falling into the water and decomposing.
