Sea Smoke Sunrise

This photo was taken at Hollow Rock Resort in Grand Portage, MN on the shores of Lake Superior.  The temperature was minus 15 degrees Fahrenheit.  This little tree is situated on top of Hollow Rock itself and was covered in ice from wave spray and the steam (sea smoke) that is common on the lake this time of year.  I was fascinated by the steam illuminated from the rising sun behind the rock.  As the steam drifted by, the sunlight on the tree made for an eerie shadow which I thought made for an interesting photo.  This shot was a totally unexpected find for the day and I'm glad I saw it.  I spent the remainder of the day looking for photos, but this was the highlight of my day!
