The winters can be harsh along the shorelines of Lake Ontario but more so at the eastern most point of Prince Edward County. Point Traverse juts out into the lake, totally exposed to the eastern elements. The storms in this area are legendary, and many ships have been lost to it's treacherous currents.
This image was created on a cold January morning. The thick plate like ice had formed over a few calm days but when the wind came up again the waves broke up the ice, and piled it onshore in what appears to be an orderly fashion.
I arrived to this location just before sunrise, so it was still quite dark necessitating a 3 second exposure. The long exposure created an interesting effect, where the ice already on shore was still but the movement of the ice still out on the lake was evident, creating an interesting kinetic contrast.
