I know, this is bleak and bleached, but it's what my lake looks like now...What's amazing is that, a hundred feet behind where you're looking, there's a massive wall of high rises, a huge multi-lane road with tons of cars...and, a few blocks from there---within a glance---a massive number of high-end shops, upper crust condominiums, fancy restaurants, the 'jet set', et al. The miracle of the lake is that, a few steps off this crammed city, you suddenly enter the arctic wilderness...Just a mood piece, a snapshot of some of the tranquility and emptiness of our huge midwestern winter...(better when seen large)
Just wanted to say hi...I'm here on and off, but I'm getting to you all! I hope you're having a good weekend, and I wish you all health, wellness and warmth. Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fine night, mark

What a great image here, Mark. One would think it was taken in the arctic somewhere, or even on an expanse of midwestern prairie rather than a few steps from a major city. I've heard horror stories about winters up there with all those lakes that are bigger than some countries. Brrrrr….
But you really captured the desolate beauty of the season, buddy. Really well done!
This is beautiful. The simpleness is it's elegance. The beaten and worn fencing looks like it's tired of holding back the winter. The line of water adds movement and the tree peeking around the corner adds the promise of warmer days to come. The fact that there are hidden civilizations behind the whiteness is mysterious and dreamy and it hints at an unknown horizon/future. This has classic colors and light; it belongs in a Fine Art Museum.
