Photographer's Note

The cold air of winter had come to Lake Erie a big Lake that doesn't always freeze over completly in the winter. ( 257 miles long and 57 miles across) a few weeeks ago though most of it was ice covered to some degree. Then a storm started brewing on the lakes. It started with a warm from that came up and across the United States. The warm air mixing with the cold air coming off the ice on the lakes, caused turmoil. Winds were blowing at 50knots for 36 hours making waves up to 18 feet ( go stand outside and look at the roof of your two story house, the waves were over that high). With every crashing wave on the edge of the ice, it was pushed closer and closer to shore until the huge blocks of ice started pushing their way up the banks, in many places along the lake they were pulverized into huge piles of ice, but here the water is shallow so the ice just moved in closer and closer, reminded me of a glacier.
Just another day witnessing the forces of nature.
