My third shot on my recent outing was of a frozen bubble. This was the most difficult image and I still need to perfect the process. Wind played a role in shortening the life of my bubbles and trying to get an image before they popped was not easy. Of the attempts, this was the best and I’m not overly excited by it, but I will continue to try.
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.
Areas of light and dark in the small crevices along the shore highlight the abstract patterns in ice.
When you get too close to Lake Superior in winter, you run the risk of being frozen in place till warmer weather releases you.
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.
Winters can get very cold around Lake Superior, so cold in fact almost anything can become frozen. This truly is the spirit of winter in the northland.
