frozen in place



Waves appear on the surface of the Fox River. A closer look reveals that they are frozen in place, the effect of whitecaps are created as the drifting snow nestles on the leading edge.

A large contingent of Canada Geese set up camp on the edges of the still unfrozen open water. Crashing waves, seemingly frozen in mid-air are an awesome sight on the larger Lake Michigan.

I've seen those frozen waves on Lake Michigan and they are something. It is strange to walk out on the ice with these large pieces of ice, some pointed almost like a large sculpture. It always was a little scary, fear of the ice breaking, even though cars drove on the ice at times. It looked like there was a real "heat wave" there this week though.
