Brighton Beach

Thin ice formed along the shores of Lake Superior this year.  Heavy winds pushed the sheets of ice toward the shoreline.  What was left behind was quite impressive.  I was hoping for a break in the clouds tonight with beautiful golden sunshine to illuminate the ice, but instead photographed the scene with gloomy skies overhead.

The past few mornings have been cold.  Brutally cold.  Temperatures in the -20 range with windchill factors around -40 or colder.  Today was slightly better, plus the sunrise was quite nice.

I stepped outside our front door at 7:38 a.m. to snap this photo of the beautiful pastel sky and the sea smoke rising above Lake Superior.

Twenty minutes later everything had changed with the exception of the sea smoke.
