Yesterday, I needed a break from cleaning and reorganizing my creative space, so I went cross-country skiing at Menominee Park on Lake Winnebago.    It was a beautiful, bright clear crisp day!  Enjoy the pictures.

I actually had a chemical hand warmer in my camera bag so that the battery would not die from the cold.  It worked like 2 charms!

 These are ice shoves.  For those of you who don't live near a lake that freezes, ice shoves are frozen chunks that get pushed ashore.  Wave action continues even while the lake is in the process of freezing and thawing.    I thought they looked kind of monolithic (even though there are 2 or 3 here).   And I liked the stripes on the ice behind it ...  I'm always on the lookout for pattern, textures and colors.

A little more color to the sky as I finished up my late afternoon ski.
