In Winter’s Grip

The cold has tightened it’s grip upon the land and is making every effort to smother everything in it’s path.  I get shivers just looking at this image.

Frozen Flashback

One of my images from 2015 when Lake Superior froze and provided the locals with a unique photo opportunity.

Before It’s Gone

On Thursday, I took time for a short visit to Duluth’s Park Point to see if the winds had blown the remaining ice into shore.  It had, but the warm temperature was making quick work of eliminating the ice along the beach.  As I walked the beach, I was able to spot a few gems amongst the larger churning chunks.  It took paying attention to the timing of the waves to get the shots without getting soaked, and I had to also pay attention the loosely piled bits of ice which was like drifts of large hail stones.  I never knew how deep I might sink or if I would slide toward the beach and land in the water.  But, if you don’t go, you don’t see.  If you don’t see, you don’t get the photo.
