I remember looking out at the polar icecap in Thule, Greenland and seeing a sight very similar to this. Taken at the shore of Lake Ontario in mid January, there is a lot of ice and you can walk pretty far out on it if you’re stupid and foolhardy. I was standing on the ice to get this shot but it’s as far as I dared to go. It’s hard to see the ice under a foot of snow and at the time the wind was blowing pretty hard.
Here is the same shot in color. The yellow/orange you see is churned up sand that gets trapped in the ice. Welcome to Webster (Where Life is Worth Living)! Just kidding. Actually this was shot in Irondequoit, our neighbor to the West.
Happy birthday, Mom.
Happy birthday, Pia.
