It is VERY rare to see the water in the Bay so calm that there could be a reflection. There is no room to walk or stand on the Captree Bridge, so after driving across, I had to pull over on the snow and carefully shimmy along the rail to avoid the cars. Luckily at this time of the morning traffic is light. After a few shots my fingers were freezing (16 degrees) and a break in the traffic allowed me to run on the road back to the Jeep. It was worth it!
