I've seen this before, haven't I? (Or one very much like it.) I agree with Paul - this is stunning. The combination of the soft light and delicate ice covered branches, against the dark and forboding sky - amazing!

Love this, Rick.... #232727

Thanks to each of you for your comments on "First Ice."

I had to take this early in the season when the ice is thin since later on the lake is filled with ice fishermen going after the Rainbow Trout and Eastern Brook in Edith Lake.

Beautiful shot, Rick! Precise exposure and focus as always. Looks like it's dipping colder in the evenings in your area than it is here! #233478
