Spring is a time of year when the world becomes more green. You know – green grass, green leaves, etc. At our home in Northern Michigan this year, it means green ice.
I should note before you ask: Kim did not alter or enhance the color of these photos on her computer. Photoshop allows that kind of color-editing, but none was needed here when she took these pictures.
|Early morning mist, looking east|
|Also early morning, looking south.|
|Part of the fun is figuring out what is ice, what is water, and what is something else.|
|The wide crack is where I was sitting in a chair about ten days ago.|
|Do you recognize what the blue is?|
|Taken from a neighbor's dock, late afternoon.|
|See any Petoskey stones?|
|The next day most of the ice was gone, but what remained was still green.|
|Sunrise, a day later, with snow in the forecast . . . |
Kim has said that one of the pleasures in living on a lake is that every hour brings us something different. How true. Of course, that's true even if you don't live on a lake, provided you pay attention.
Update for the none of you who asked: the American Tree Sparrow has a white tongue.
