Well, it's a big difference from yesterday. I took this only a few hours ago this morning on my way into work. The wind chill out there was -22F. My camera froze to my face as I took this picture. For some reason, unlike yesterday's shot, the lake was far from frozen over. Instead, there was lots of warm-looking steam rising from the water's surface. I'm not sure why that happens, but it is a dramatic sight. Earlier in the week, the fog coming up from the water was so dense you could barely see past it.

Even without your comments, it just looks REAL cold. Great capture

icy water...that's intense. that was far from my imagination right now, since it's bursting hot right now from where i stand. this image is literally icy cool. love the hue of blue and the vastness of the sea...if only i could plunge.

Superb view! The water looks very clean and pure!
-22F no thanks! ;-)

This is a very "cool" shot, Mike. Very multidimensional. I almost looks like you can see down below the water and yet you have the vapors rising which look like reflected clouds. Contrasted to that is the crisp reflection of the city and the clear blue sky. Lots of nice things happening in this one.

The reflection is wonderful. And I like the steam on the water.
