The Lake

We spent Christmas at Jim's family's farm in Minnesota. A lake borders their property and while we were there we stole away on a cold and dreary afternoon to see what we could see. It was incredibly foggy that day, and cold. And it hadn't snowed in a while, and it had been windy, so everything was dirty and gray. I appreciated the challenge. Though we had to try a little harder to find "the beautiful", it was certainly there.

My hands were too cold to adjust and work with the manual focus on my camera, as that required glove-removal, so there are a few shots I regret I didn't go after like I could have, and the 4 Wheeler got stuck just twice, one not so badly, and one was just pretty darn bad- that one was my fault- but all in all, it was a great time.

That just looks TOO cold! I'm glad it was such a good time though.

beautiful pictures! I actually think the colder it is the more amazing the pictures turn out. I have misplaced my memory card so I have yet to capture all the ice we have here.... any day now!
