Captured while standing in Lake Superior on a -10°F morning. The waves were crashing into the shoreline with enough vigor to send the occasional splash up into the trees, but I knew the best angle for the shot was a few feet out into Lake Superior...so in I went. Fortunately, I wore knee high insulated rubber boots...unfortunately, one of them sprang a leak that morning! As my bibs and jacket, not to mention camera gear, became covered in a thin sheet of ice the sunrise began. The sun started glowing through the clouds of sea smoke, providing a warm light that contrasted well with the frozen shoreline. I timed out each exposure between the waves to prevent my tripod from being jolted enough to blur the images. For just a brief moment the sun bathed the scene in a golden light, which was when I captured this image.
