The sun came out today and I went for a lovely walk around the lake. It proved to be very magical. Using my little lumix point and shoot I captured some amazing shots of around the lake. It was quite mild and what seemed to be water droplets hanging off everything turned out to be ice crystals. The trees on the lake front were coated in ice,a wee bit of ice had formed out on one side but was quickly melting away. The waves washed over the roacks as they came in as the water level is so low. I could hear a bald eagle calling and as I aproached the tree they sit in and he took flight over the lake to do some fishing. I watched him for a while soaring over the water in search of a meal.Tiny crustations( zebra mussels ) were trapped in the ice along the beachfront. It was totally incredible.
