A section of the river in Pilkington Valley near Elora, with giant slabs of ice as testament to the dynamics in play this winter.
I enjoy the frigid image and remember well the song of your title.

@Michael Skorulski: Always nice to throw in a song reference from time to time; thanks a lot.
Those slabs of ice are amazing and the cool flow of water makes an excellent foreground.

@Stephen: We recently found a road that leads down into this valley, not far from where we live in a small town, and it is going to be a wonderful sunset watching-photography spot when the warmer weather arrives. Thanks !
The thickness which made the ice is impressive

@Gérard Flayol: Some slabs were two feet thick. It has been a wildly dynamic winter in terms of fluctuating temperatures.
That really does look unforgiving . .

@Ronnie 2¢: Not as unforgiving as the mosquitoes here in a few months ! ;-)
Great view ! I've never seen such...

@Hiro: Glad to share with you; I have learned some great new things about Japan through your photos, too. My thanks, Hiro.

@grouser: Ha ! Icy your quick wit hasn't thawed a bit, mister g.
Yes, metaphorically too ;) Superb presence of the ice !

@k@: I'm always one foot in the metaphor dimension, my friend. Thanks a lot !
A view all too familiar. The Delaware outside my window gets chunks of ice like this often during periods of cold weather.

@Ruthiebear: This valley becomes mosquito hell during the summer months. Crazy differences in the seasons.
A beautiful composition with these broken sbeets of ice! The detail is superb as it actually shows the layers that are pancaked together. An excellent title for this shot!

@Steven: Thanks much, Steven.
A powerful and wild image!

@Adela Fonts: Thanks, Adela.
Wow, those slabs of ice are so thick. I'm surprised that it's breaking up so early.

@Steve Rice: Elora is in snow belt country but we've had a winter of sudden drastic thaws, which probably explains why such thick ice cover broke up this way. Thanks, Steve.
bop shoo wop....nobody mentioned the song but me. I have not gotten out to the river yet (snowed in sorta) but I just know this is going to be the scene. up close love the formidable power water in any form.

@Joyce: I like fitting music references in where I can. This is a water planet we are blessed with. It is such a potent force in all of its permutations. Thanks, Joyce.
Wow, that was a mighty ice cover, judging by the thikness of the slabs! I like the attractive layers in your winter-slowly-ending image!

@Franz: We were surprised by the thickness of those slabs of ice. It's a nice wide valley and will be a great spot for summertime sunset images, albeit we will have to slather on insect repellent. Thanks as always, franz.

@Existence Artistique: :-)
I LOVE your choice of title! Always room for a smile when it's Nature's Way! ;-) Keep yp the Spirit!

@Denny Jump: I figured a music person like you, good sir, might dig that title. My thanks !

a beautiful image
