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.
