All the world is frozen

Mike, a few friends and I jumped into the lake yesterday and raised some money for families in need - it was a really great time. The water was no where near as shocking as one might expect and it was over before it began. Take it from me - if you're up to it - the polar bear plunge is a great time!

 

Before I jumped into the drink, I headed out at sunrise to catch a few shots of this frozen Mishigami. Here's an image from North Avenue Beach of the death-still and frozen lake by the near-north skyline. It has been a while since I've posted a fisheye shot - thought it was time to remedy that :). I love how the horizon bends into an arc as you aim the camera towards the ground. It makes it look as though the photograph were taken from some altitude high enough that the curvature of the Earth is visible and all the world is a frozen wonderland.
