Some Love from CNN

Posted: January 14th, 2010 | Author: admin | Filed under: Photography |

This past Sunday I set out on a journey to capture at least one Missouri frozen over solid. I had stories of the Mississippi freezing over a few times in the early 1900′s was hoping to capture the it frozen over solid since we had a low of 0° F the night before. The scene was very cold, foggy, and quiet since it was still around 5° F that morning.

To my disappointment it was not frozen over, at least not where I was, downtown near the Poplar Street Bridge. The only river that appeared to be frozen over solid was the Meremac in Fenton, MO. I still got a few cool shots of and got some love from CNN as an iReporter. The Mississippi post I made got 178,000 views in one day! I’ll take that free press any day of the week.

If you are a photog you should sign up as an iReporter for CNN. It’s a great way to get your pics out worldwide!
