POTD: High Water Mark

2004 DCHigh Water Mark Washington, DC 2004

I recently remarked that I could remember the location and circumstances of 99 percent of all the photos I’ve ever taken. But, after going through a ton of my old computer files doing some cataloging etc., I may have to take that back; I didn’t count how many images I didn’t remember, but it was likely more than one percent. Anyway, I do remember the trip to DC where this photo was taken, but don’t remember seeing this ice on the rock or taking the photo when I was there. It’s kind of tempting to imagine the ice represents the high water mark of some recent flood event, but I have a feeling a more likely explanation is that someone pulled the disk of ice out of a puddle and balanced it there–in homage to Andrew Goldsworthy perhaps.]]>
