2/1/2012 Outdoor Wednesday #160

Life is too short to stay inside even when there is ice forming at Lake Michigan.    It isn't easy putting on the boots, the mittens, the parka; but I grab the camera and go.   It is like a miracle being down at the lake.   Hear that sound of waves roaring in and then the waves gently turning around and going back out to sea; that is like an AHA moment for me.   I breath in the fresh air.   I stand on frozen sand and rejoice that I am alive.  This is worth it.

  3. Hi Joyce, you are right there! I can relate to you, but i haven't experienced winter so i might not really know how i will behave in that cold. Your photos are so beautiful, but the area seems so lifeless, deserted, and maybe sad! Why are those stones black with some drippings, is that tar?

  8. Photography is addicting. I relate with getting all dressed to handle the weather since I lived in Fairbanks, Alaska, for nearly five years. I did not make pictures then. My life is so different now, since I live in Alabama.

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comment. The verse I used is from the hymn, "For the Beauty of the Earth." When you feel and see God's beauty in the earth it is a praise to Him.
