A week ago there was ice extending out into Lake Superior as far as the eye could see. Thanks to the winds we've had in the past week, most of that ice has been pushed out across the lake and we once again have open water along the north shore. That doesn't mean that there aren't some worthwhile ice formations to photograph right on the shore, though! Like this one, which I photographed just after sunrise recently. The ice that you see on the lake in the background is no longer there, but formations like this "Icicle Palace" still remain for exploration!
