Sea Ice on Long Island Sound, February 1, 2004

Superbowl Sunday 2004 on Long Island featured dry air and a beautiful deep blue sky, a perfect day for a walk on the beach. The walk revealed an unusual amount of sea ice lining the edges of Long Island Sound in the Smithtown Bay area.

The following images were taken on February 1, 2004 at various locations around Short Beach, which is located on the east side of the mouth of the Nissequogue River. Included are views of the Sound, the beach itself, and several images taken on the river side of the Smithtown park at Short Beach. Click any of the thumbnails to view a higher resolution image.
