Astoria: Cold and beautiful morning

This morning was about as cold as it usually gets here in Astoria. The colors and clarity on the river showed the scene in all its glory. The photo was taken looking approximately east, and the bit of land sticking out into the river in the background on the right is Tongue Point. I took the photo from a block or so east of the Maritime Museum.

We usually have a few days each year when we have ice on the ground. Here is a puddle with the top frozen between the River Walk and the river bank.

Looking back west toward the Astoria-Megler bridge through trees that show damage from our big storm in December.
