Finding Color in a Wintery Landscape at Chagrin River Park

We’ve had an unusually long stretch of bitter cold temperatures, coupled with lots of snow. Even though there isn't much to see outside but mostly white scenery with bare trees, one can still find color in the landscape. Here’s a photo I took a few weeks ago at Chagrin River Park. There was a massive ice jam on the Chagrin River and the river was nearing flood stage. (I believe the park was closed the next day.)  One nearby area was filling with slightly muddy and icy water which reflected both the pale color of the sky and the dormant grasses. It looked surreal to say the least, but at least it brought a touch of color to an otherwise bleak landscape. (Click on image for a larger view.)
