  1. Wow. I wonder what that must feel like, existing out there in a warm box on the ice. The last one with the tracks emphasizes the idea that they are existing where no one has gone before. New world, in a way.

    1. The Ephemeral Frontier!
      I bet it’s nice to get away from it all, although now you can text, watch You Tube and ice fish all at the same time. I wonder if there’s and iFish application for your iPhone?

      1. No! Not at all, I just thought the colours were beautiful. You had pretty colours in the indoor fog ones too remember πŸ™‚ And there have also been those caramel autumn leaves clinging on still in places, and the fishing shacks have colour too. Your photos are never monotone. Ha, not even the ones with snow! πŸ™‚ And low-key? I don’t think so πŸ™‚ Always something interesting to see here!

    1. Thank you Kathleen. The other day when I was there and all the trucks were out on the ice I could hear it making noises and shifting, slightly disconcerting. There is a crack running through these tracks…

      1. Oh I regularly (ab)use this lens! =)

        Actually, these were taken with a Nikkor 24-120mm 1:3.5-5.6 D

        A very sturdy workhorse, do anything lens. I actually have a an 18-35mm wide angle lens but it was not on the camera when I took these. (The 24-120mm is an old lens and no longer available new but I find it extremely versatile for many things)
        What kind of camera do you have Helen?

      2. just slept in the chair from sheer exhaustion…off to bed now !! The new camera I’m always on about is the Nikon D5100 ..came with standard 18-55mm and I’ve bought the 40mm macro which I LOVE and a 55-300mm which is great.. .. but I’d love a proper wide angle ( used to have one pre-digital when I had the old Olympus OM1 ) justb don’t know which one to get that I could afford !

  2. The early bird gets the light. Early morning used to be my favorite time for scenic photography. It still is but I am hardly ever there to make use of its spectacular sunlight. These photographs are very beautiful.

  3. This location looks like a great place! Lucky you! Love that trailer sitting there in the white expanse. Again, great photos! Cheers, Steve

  4. You seem to have very long winters! From these pix, it looks like it’s set to stay for months! You must be longing for spring. We have had very little winter. I am not dreading spring -of course not! – but it’s better when you get all four. Summer, barely an autumn, a few cold days and then spring is a little unsatisfying … :).

  5. Love the little lone trailer on the big expanse of ice…. You live in such a beautiful place =) Thanks for letting us see.
