Island of Ice
This morning I explored a piece of Lake Superior shoreline that had some really beautiful ice formations. Even though it was cloudy and snowing, there were a few breaks in the clouds and I was hopeful for an amazing sunrise filled with color. That didn't happen, but I still enjoyed my time on the shore. Even though there was not much color, the scene was still extraordinary. The ice formations were sublime. I loved the "skirt" of ice that lined the rocks surrounding the island. The morning was extremely quiet with only the slightest breeze and I swear I could actually hear the snow hitting the ground as it fell. Peaceful mornings along the Lake Superior shoreline are the best, and this one certainly qualified!
