The Ice Breaks

Ice on the Connecticut River.

Ice on the Connecticut River.


Waiting for the sun to set over the city of Middletown, Connecticut while working on an essay concerning middle-America and this political moment. This is the view from the steel bridge that serves as a visual gateway to the city.

Below: the city skyline just before sunset and a railway swing bridge in the foreground. For some reason the curve of the river and the current breaks up the ice just past the rail bridge.
