About this photo from Burtchville near Lakeport in the Thumb, Tim writes:
A very windy night produced large waves for Lake Huron, causing the ice shelves built up along shore to break up and float down the coast. About 50 ft out were these mushroom shaped mounds of ice, which served as a subject in this photo.
Just before I shot this, a wave splashed up and instantly froze to my camera. I had to quickly scrape/wipe the ice from the lens to capture the sun behind the clouds while it lasted. The filters threads were covered in ice, so I hand held the GND in place during the shot.
A photographer’s version of drama?
