"Muddy" is an actual name of the river :-), park along it is the part of Boston's Emerald Necklace.
I'm not good at breaking the rules, just cloned out few twigs and a couple of ducks, which still would not have done in the regular challenge.
Not a landscape person either, but this one was impossible to resist! Luckily, had camera at work from shooting for the other challenge, so when the snowstorm finished around 4pm and the sky cleared to this incredible golden-pink, all I could do is run from work and wonder around with stupid happy smile.
Thank you for generous voting and kind comments!

The sunny day hereabouts immediately following the snowstorm was just magical, and you captured that feeling in your beautifully framed view of the river. I can feel the stillness and quiet!! Great shot and congrats on the ribbon.

Love the sunset or sunrise reflections in the water beautiful. Bumping up.

8 from me... love the scene... (but not the title... the "muddy" part isn't obvious to me... and it kinda made it dirty in my head after seeing all of the pristine snow)
