As I like to say, this was a real temperature, not a science experiment. Earlier this week I was on my way into work and decided to stop by North Avenue Beach to see how cold it really was. As the sun was rising, it was cold enough that steam was rising from the lake quite heavily, and the wind was blowing the steam around in wisps over the surface. It hasn't been cold long enough for the surface of the lake to freeze this close to shore, and the steam will stop once that happens. I was alone out there shooting when this woman came around with her camera doing what I was doing. She seemed to make a much more interesting subject.

Those wisps are killer! Beautiful light and color, Mike! Awesome shot.

If she turned 45 degrees and took a shot - her picture would show you in a wetsuit ready to jump in. Right? ; )
