Lake of the woods.... err... Lake :-D

Follow this link and zoom all the way in to see where i was.

This was taken, staring at Canada from "Rocky Point". What you are seeing is the sheeting action where the ice is pushed from the middle of the lake by wind or pressure to the edges of the lake. This ice flakes in massive chunks and forms barriers to climb over to get to the actual lake. This year the barriers weren't too high, although they have been known to reach 20-30 feet high. I don't know the name of the formations but they are really beautiful when there is a quick freeze of the lake.

    ahh you are lucky to have the rocks. i can stare at Canada but it's mostly just gritty sand in some spots. wonderful job with emphasizing the light and shadow on the rocks. really enhances the mood of the moment.
