Ice Flow
Driving across the Chaudiere crossing in the mornings has me attuned to the river, contained as it is within various spillways. Yesterday, going North I noticed that both halves of the flow were frozen and thought it would make a good photo. On the way back I found the sun had warmed one side enough to break up the ice, which was flowing under the bridge. I wanted to try a slow exposure to show the movement, but this didn't work very well. I noticed, though, that I had several shots from a similar angle, and flipping through them was like a little animation of the ice moving. I'd never created an animated gif before, so I decided to give it a try. It's a cool effect and one that I may yet try again, perhaps with a few more frames next time.

If the image isn't moving give it a sec to load, it's big. If you're on Safari it seems to have some bugs with animated gifs, try viewing the image on its own. Grr, technology spoiling my idea!
