Last one from yesterdays shoot. I wanted to capture some shelf ice on Lake Michigan as it was completely frozen over as far as the eye could see. But just couldn’t find a good angle my shadow kept getting in the way LOL. So I found these trees to be so pretty amongst the beautiful dune grass and fresh fallen snow. So I worked this area for about an hour taking pictures on one tree two tree three trees different angles ect LOL.

A landscape view of Its A Beautiful Winter’s Day. Not sure about the comp as my eyes are kind of all over the place but I think its a pretty picture though.

Taken along the shore line of Lake Michigan, Northwest Indiana Jan of 2009.

Nikon D80 Sigma 10-20mm F10 1/320s 10mm.

Thanks for looking.
