Waiting For The Thaw

Being a tree along Lake Superior is not an easy thing. Especially in the winter. This poor birch tree was standing guard at Presque Isle’s “Sunset Point” in Marquette, Michigan. I’d gone out to Black Rocks to try to catch a frozen sunrise over Lake Superior, though the clouds thwarted my plans for that. While walking back out I found a few shots like this as a consolation prize. It was tricky, because there was enough wind that the branches were moving, but not enough light to do a fast enough exposure to avoid blur.
