Icy North Point Sunrise


Icy North Point Sunrise, originally uploaded by RJIPhotography.

Sometimes, you gotta go with your hunches and act quickly. I went down to the lakefront on Saturday. It was cold, windy and cloudy. I stayed hoping for a glimpse of the sun but it was not to be. I did get some images that look decent in black and white.

I woke this morning and really didn't plan to go out shooting. Out of the corner of my eye, I noticed the sky was getting lighter . . . there was blue sky and clouds. I quickly grabbed my gear and went to the lakefront and was greeted by a wonderful sunrise. The light on the iceflows along the lake was warming, even for winter. The contrast of the ice with it's blue tint and the orange glow of first light made it a colorful morning.

Bob,

I favorited this on Flickr yesterday. This is the best shot I've ever seen from North Point. The sharpness and color are amazing.

Thanks Jeff. It was one of the last of the morning but I had to try to capture that orange glow. Thanks again.
