I didn’t want this day to end as the views were wonderful. Once the sun came out it wasn’t too cold as long as you stayed moving. In this location the ice was floating by in large sheets that were colliding together.

    • Thanks West! It was very cold this year. A lot colder than normal. We had quite a few days below zero with some days reaching 30+ below zero as the wind chill. I didn’t go out shooting on those colder days, but I did make a few trips in the single digits and because of the extreme negative temps, it made for a lot of nice views on the lake.


      • Gorgeous and serene — and FREEEZING!! Im from fla. so pretty much any temperature below 50 and we’re all bundled up like its the Ice Age LOL


          • LOL~ I can’t imagine shorts in 30 degree weather~ and 140?? Ugh~ I’m fine in 100-105 but I’m surrounded on all sides by lakes, oceans and pools so I can’t complain— except for the gators— they are everywhere! Stay warm if it’s still cold and if not, I hope you can get out and follow the sun soon πŸ™‚


          • It’s been in the 60’s and 70’s lately with a few days in the 80’s so far. Spring kind of went fast this year so everything is now in the swing of summer. Just been trying to dodge the raining days to be able to get out when I can when my schedule allows me to.

            We don’t have to worry about gators up here. πŸ™‚ The mosquitoes are horrible this year though. Other than the mosquitoes, there’s not much else to deal with which is nice. I grew up in Kansas and you had to deal with spiders and snakes all over the place. Snakes I don’t mind, but I can live without the spiders.


          • How lucky you are! We have it all..reptiles, spiders, big bugs …and where I live even bears LOL πŸ™‚ I dont like reptiles or spiders of any kind~ I had to stay in a hotel when a skink made its way into my apartment hahah …. but thats another story …oi!!!


          • I never knew Florida had bears. I had to Google it and they are their own species, a subspecies of the american black bear. We’ve got bears here but they don’t seem to be much of a problem. I think it’s because most of them live in the areas of WI that aren’t as heavily populated.


          • πŸ™‚ I see them quite frequently ~ more at night and happen to know from first hand knowledge that they love Pizza~ as they often go through my garbage can carry off the left over boxes (this is true~) …I suspect that they like doughnuts as well~
