This picture was taken last winter in subzero degre. Hope you like it
Man, I find this fascinating. The ice is not flat which means the wind must have frozen the white caps as they were occuring. Just doesn't happen that way out here. Cool.
I think that you are right. Have you notice the birds? It was so cold that they did not want to fly, I had to throw a couple slice of bread in the air and then they went nut :smile:
That's almost certainly snow on the ice which has blown to form those crests. The Great Lakes usually have a substantial snow layer over the ice, which in a good winter, is easily strong enough to drive a truck towing an icefishing shed out to a location for the season.
I've worked over all of the Great Lakes in winter, so this isn't random supposition.
It's a bit different than Utah, that's for sure. :tongue:
Very good photo. It has many elements in it and it makes you want to study it.
Sub zero on the lake and you're out taking pictures. Are you nuts? :smile:
Very nice image, Ben. I have wanted to get down to the lakeshore to get some similar images, but staying in a warm environment is much more practical. One shot that has always interested me is from the same vantage point as your image, but with the water not frozen and steam rising upward in the cold weather. But tough to go out in the freezing cold!!! Maybe this winter?????
Brrrr......great shot Ben...it's going to get here again soon
The flying flock of birds on the frozen lake reveals the surreal and dream like scenery :smile:
Nope, Just try to enjoy my addiction hobby :biggrin: Anyway sub zero without wind is tolerable
You could take lake shore drive and exit on Montrose, plenty of free parking and it is very close to the lake. Condensation on the lens/camera is my primary concern during winter :smile:
Yep, it is around the corner meanwhile I am looking forward to autumn, my favorite season to take picture
Thanks for all your comments
A top notch picture, I like the composition and that "something extra" (cant quite describe it)
Very nice work (coming from Australia, I cant believe that such an expanse of water could freeze over)
Hi Ben -
I like this shot a bunch - fine depth of field, and the inclusion of the Chicago skyline adds interest to the scene.
So, how far up on the north shore were you when you took this?
Not too far from downtown, just a couple of miles. The downtown skyline seem quite far but it is not because I took thic picture with my wide angle lens
