Frozen Hudson River, Decaying Fleet

With all the cold weather here in the Hudson River Valley the mighty Hudson has frozen over with 6 inches of ice along the shores of Athens. A group of old decaying work barges near the Peckham Industries terminal has long been a favorite photo subject of mine. So with the frozen river surface providing a solid surface to explore these barges from angles which would only be access by boat. This past weekend I strapped on the ice cleats and ventured out onto the frozen surface to capture the decaying fleet from a different angle.
