Joys in the Attic

nvm_0007-edit-edit

Due to having injured my back pushing my car out of a frozen divot, I have not been out shooting much lately.  But that doesn’t mean I can’t find something to do, which includes checking my attic windows for frost patterns.  Every year the patterns are a bit different and I enjoy exploring, capturing and tweaking the best of them.
My back is finally improving and soon I expect to be outdoors searching for new winter compositions.

Seeking Stranger Things

What often seems to be of cosmic origin is sometimes more terrestrial in nature.

New Year, New Folder

I find it exciting to start a new year by generating a new 2019 folder on my hard drive and in Lightroom.  As I look at the list of new folders, I see twelve months of potential.  I dream of outings with a camera.  I start planning trips to places not yet explored.  I look forward to filling each month’s folder with new creations.  January already has it’s first entry, can’t wait to add more.

Peering Over The Edge

This time of year in Duluth, along the seven miles of sandbar on Lake Superior known as Park Point, wave action forms amazing ice formations that often have an alien feel to them.  Each storm adds its contribution and the ice builds in layers outward from the beach.  Depending on conditions, there will be piles of ice rising high above the water, ice caves and blowholes.  Caution  is advised when exploring these formations as the lake is always in motion and you never know when one of the chunks may break off or split.    Also, the spaces between the heavier layers may have thinner ice.

Ice Breakers

On an unseasonably warm day in Duluth, two kayakers find themselves ice bound.  I have to believe they were wearing dry suits as one of them eventually exited his kayak and used his paddle to break an opening through the ice to open water.
