COLD: A few from Lake Erie
7 months ago

One of the few remaining spots with open water (aided by warm water releases from a nearby power plant) has been quite the 'hotbed' of activity the last few times I've been over there. In the last three weeks, I've been maybe half a dozen times or so. While it makes for some decent pictures, it's also becoming quite clear this extended cold weather is taking its toll. There are many duck carcasses laying about. Fish heads are everywhere on the ice, while whole fish bodies are stacked up in every crack and crevice along the docks. There are some good photographs to be had but it makes me realize I'm lucky to be able to get out of the weather. These animals are clearly in a fight for survival.

Towing the line

Frozen fish - not a meal (worked it for a couple minutes before giving up)

Never seen water frozen in waves..'til now.

The one that got away (from me--not the best capture--and the eagle!)
