For a few winters I’ve made the drive over to the Lake Erie shoreline at Magee Marsh just East of Toledo… it’s no Lake Superior shoreline, but every now and then the ice still does something interesting. This particular day that I was there, things looked somewhat bleak overall, not a lot to draw the eye. But one of the things I learned a long while back in trying to do better photography was that sometimes you have to force yourself into a different perspective. In this case, it was getting the camera down to about ankle level.
In particular, I like the similarities between ice chunks and clouds. In both color and pattern. I would have liked to have gotten more tree in the frame, but there were some rocks in the way.
