Winter Lake 3


The wind from the east churned up some waves which broke larger chunks of ice into ice cubes which sloshed offshore and crashed onshore.

The next day, after the wind had stopped and a couple inches of new snow had fallen, the Lake was looking promisingly beautiful to me although I know others may only see emptiness.

The previous day’s waves had created a row of ice dunes along the shore.

I love the pastels and greys and whites of winter, but sometimes it is nice to notice a different color.

Alas, the changing winds drove the ice back away from shore.

Yesterday’s dawn was another of the brutally cold ones, -15 with -35 wind chill again. I felt less dedicated this time, and there wasn’t anything more lovely than usual so I only took one round of photos to spare my fingers.

But then I came home and ordered winter photography gloves, so I’ll be ready next time.
