Cold, so very cold.  Not the kind of day anyone should venture out without proper preparation.  It goes beyond being uncomfortable, it’s not just that you can harm your body, it’s the kind of cold that can kill the unprepared.  Take it seriously.

A Lovely Day at the Beach

There’s nothing like a little sun, a lot of water and some time to wander the shoreline.  Even in the cold of northern Minnesota there is reason to explore the nooks and crannies of the rocky shore of Lake Superior.  Being an ice hunter, I go searching for the creations of nature while they persist, but knowing that what exists today will be gone tomorrow.  However, in it’s place will be new creations formed by wind, water and cold.

But Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

The temp was -12F when I ran from my warm car to capture a few shots before dashing back the the warmth of my heated seat.  The water of Lake Superior is warmer than the air which produces the mist, also known as sea smoke.
