Icy Wind and Waves

Recognize this light anywhere. Good colors, like the action and touch of ice. Think I even saw this on Wood TV8's website. Great shot here.

You are right, it was in the Wood TV weather photo contest. This was a great photo day, very big waves, lots of wind, bright sun, ice.... great for pictures... not so great for the photographer. It was worth it though. Thanks for the kind comments.
