This looked like an iceberg on the Lake. I took this just before the sun went down and I had to walk across the ice to get it. I’m guessing the ice is probably 2 feet thick at this point. I wasn’t worried about it breaking but it gets dark very fast this time of day and the temp dropped to 19° (F) just as fast. I took a few other shots but I didn’t wait around to see the sun go down.
I’m glad you decided to brave the elements, ken; these are gorgeous!
PS: Happy New Year to you!
Thanks, Janina. I’m just about defrosted now.
Very nice skies in both of these!
Thanks, Mel. I almost missed my curfew to get these.
. . . don’t let the sun go down on you . . .I learned that in Hawaii, walking on lava fields (cooled lava fields). I presume ice is the same way.
I haven’t been to Hawaii yet but that sounds like a good enough reason to go.
The light in the first shot is exquisite. But it sure looks cold.
It was bitter cold when I shot this a few days ago and now it’s 50° (F) today. It’ll be a while before all that ice is melted though.
FIrst image is wonderful. Great color. And an iceberg on Lake Ontario!
It surprised me, too. You can see this from Lake Road by the park as you drive by.
It looks very cold and very beautiful.
Thanks, Meander. It is beautiful and was cold. Today it’s 43°F, so quite warm by comparison.
Pretty amazing colors, Ken. Love the soft blue on the sky on the first shot.
Thanks, Gracie. Twilight is very fleeting, especially this time of year but I don’t think I’ll go back on the ice alone any time soon.
Lovely tones, great image!
I’m enjoying these fantastic photographs Ken! The light, the colours… the atmosphere. Everything! I start to freeze when I look at them 😉
Thanks, Malin. Today we are enjoying 35° (F) temps. Hardly any snow left.
Beautiful shots, Ken. Love those soft sky colors.
You’re right, the sun drops quickly this time of year and the night air will be on you before you know it.
I enjoy the crispness of the air during the Winter months. This looks like it was a fun shoot. 🙂
Nicely done, man.
Thanks, Jimi. The sun starts going down shortly after 4 PM here and then it goes down fast. It’s best not to be out on the ice alone at that time.
Two really beautiful photos !
