The Power of Lake Superior

Nothing demonstrates the power of Lake Superior more than the way its huge waves spray onto the shoreline, causing a thick icy coating on trees, rocks and shrubbery.  This usually happens in January, as the wind shifts the waves in and out overnight.  The buildup of ice creates a ledge; it is along this ledge that I often snowshoe to make my images, such as this one from January 22, 2015.  Further out, the lake remains open.
