Drum-roll at the High Banks (Au Sable)

Diane Barron's avatar Diane Barron

It is springtime in 1977 and the ice is breaking up on the Au Sable. Looking down from the high banks one sees a stunning, energized panoramic scene. What is missing in a painting is the sound as the floes collide, break and push each other onward. It is like listening to a drum-roll with the occasional cymbals!
