The frozen, rocky shoreline of Lake Superior in Two Harbors, Minnesota. I set out early on a Sunday morning in early January when the expected air temperature at sunrise would be -15F (-26C) with a wind chill factor around -30F (-29C).
I chose this time hoping for a good sunrise and the presence of sea smoke on the surface of Lake Superior. I framed this photo because I liked the frozen ice crystals seen across the rocks. The sea smoke was getting blown away as the wind ebbed and flowed.
The sunrise didn't get very colorful so I was glad to capture this before it rose above the sea smoke cloud on the far horizon. Subzero winter days like this are a joy to be out in if you and your equipment can withstand the cold.
