Last Sunday I wandered down to the lakefront to photograph the water in it’s frozen form. I knew as soon as I stepped out of the car that I should’ve dressed in warmer layers. The beaches and walkways along Lake Michigan can vary 5-10 degrees depending on the season. I found out later the temperature while I was out shooting was around -10 with the wind chill. It was a beautiful day otherwise, but I decided to call it quits when I couldn’t feel my fingers any longer.

I think my photos reflect the bite of the wind and the freezing fog that surrounded me. They also portray the feeling of isolation on a day so cold. I hope you enjoy them. Stay warm.
