Sky over Sucker Lake

On the day after Thanksgiving the sun rose over frigid air and a quiet lake. Sucker Lake is reserved for our water supply so you will never see boats gliding along--only geese, ducks, swans as well as all manner of egrets, herons and cormorants on the long sandy spits near shore. I chose this photo because it shows the lovely swirling patterns as the lake becomes solid ice.

Lovely scene! Beautiful soft colours! Somehow, the lake almost seems a part of the sky. As if the sky is freezing over in cloudy swirls! Great photo!

I love the way the colours of the sunrise are reflected in the ice of the lake.

Thank you for sharing.

This really is so lovely! I like the look of the lake's surface and the muted colors.

Thanks for stopping by mine.

So pretty! I think the sunrises and sunsets are extra special at this time of year, because our days are so short. Happy Friday!
