B-b-b-brrrrr! B-b-b-beautiful! And B-B-B-Brrrr!

Today was absolutely beautiful and downright freezing.  Since the building where my gallery is located is under renovation I decided to take a long walk and escape the beating and banging of hammers.  I’m so glad I did!  The harbor and snow-covered mountains were bathed in a pink glow and the frozen coastline was nothing but magical.

      1. Yes sheltered coves freeze and the from the shore out a ways depending on how cold it is and for how long. Superior has a very rocky steep shore and can be very ocean like, it has tides. Very stormy lake. No mountians, but there is often snow in small areas into July!

    1. Well, it’s still doing its thing, but as soon as the water splashes on shore and up in the air it freezes. But the fishermen are still taking their boats out 😉

    1. Thanks Karen. You actually came to mind today as I was taking shots, especially of the ice covered grass… thought about the amazing photos you’d take if you were here. Your work is very inspiring.

      1. Aw, thanks Erica. I think you are very brave to go out there when it’s so cold. Our winter has been relatively mild this year. Just a few days in the -20s.
        Your photographs are very beautiful.

  1. Wow. Never been somewhere cold enough that it froze ocean spray. Again you remind us what a beautiful place you live.

    After yesterday’s post about Nature’s Snow Globes and some of your questions and comments, I was reminded of another magical encounter that I posted when I first started blogging. Then it wasn’t ice-encased shrubs by a lake, but the entire coastline. Enjoy!

      1. Jaaa! 12° grader er ikke därlig for desember… men det blir kjöligere og noen ganger er det nattefrost.
        Ha en fin dag!

    1. Yes, these pictures were taken when the temps were around minus 17 C and a wind chill factor of 27 mps. That’s what made the entire coast turn into an ice sculpture.
