    The river froze near me for the first time in 4 years so I decided to go out and take some pics of the ice boats... Here are 2 of them

    They go wickedly fast!!!! It's pretty exciting to see them go. I like these pics, and the b/w treatment fits well.

    I bet those things a scary as s**t when they get going!!! Is it made with wood of fibreglass? Would not want to be in a heavy wood boat sitting on a thin layer of ice!!

    Will you eventually also go out and photograph them in action? That would be cool to see (but I am sure you must be really good at panning! I am sure they can get VERY fast! I only know about the same constructions but with wheels for large and wide and very flat beaches).

    I will try and get some panning shots sometime soon it is very hard because they are about 300 yards off shore and it is very slippery as you can imagine walking out to them and I dont really want to fall and bust my camera.
