Reverie in Blue

We're having quite the seasonal shift here in the midwest — one day it's 30 degrees subzero with piles of snow topping a foot high, and the next it's 42 degrees and melting away.  On the day of this shoot it was the
latter, as piles of ice and snow slowly began their meltdown.   The rocks by the lake had seen a decent amount of waves during our polar days, and thus had totally iced over, making the whole lakefront an ice bank.  It was fun slipping around on the icy walkway for these photos, where most other areas were suddenly puddles!


I was also reminded of one of my favorite books growing up while we were shooting this look.  The cover of the book A Crack in the Line looked a lot like some of the surrounding trees.    I thought they looked so cool with all of their twisting branches and their reflections in all the puddles beneath them.   It's times like these that I see some of the beauty that there is in nature in the winter.  I think it's a little harder to find because you have to be in the right place at the right time, and generally in winter we tend to want to be indoors.  But it's out there if you want to find it!

Until Next Time,
