I live down the road from one of our county reservoirs. Basically it’s a large man made lake. The other day I was driving by, right at sunset and as I drove over the bridge I noticed how pretty the light was on the ice. I had my camera in the car and decided to pull over and take a few shots.
Now I’ve driven over the bridge on an at least weekly basis for over 10 years now, but I’ve never actually walked out on it. It was about 10 degrees outside (real feel was below 0 degrees though) and I misestimated how long it was actually going to take to walk out there. I sure does seem a lot shorter when you drive by. Silly me, even though I always keep a heavy hat and gloves in the car during the winter, only had on thin, fingerless gloves and no hat. Cause you know, I wasn’t going to be out that long. Let’s just say the defrosting in my car for the rest of the drive was very painful. I was shooting so quickly I wasn’t really checking what I was getting, so I was happy to see I did get some good stuff out of it.
