Summer Freeze
BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Summer Freeze
Summer Freeze
This was shot last August 2005, which is summertime in California. The temperature had been in the high 90's to low 100's where I live, so I was surprised to see the amount of snow and ice on this lake. The wind was howling when I shot this--the camera was shaking, and I was shaking, too because of the brutal cold.
