Skywatch Friday in the fog

The skies up north have been foggy and grey most of this week. I caught this photo on just such a day on the lake near our house. Note the circles made on the ice by vehicles driving out to their various ice houses. Risky business because the lake is 'soft' in areas due to the higher temps we've been enjoying. A couple of intrepid fishermen were drilling with their auger far out on the lake--you can just make them out. Nearby are families of crows feasting on the remains of some lucky fisherman's catch. All that's missing from this scene is the sun! I'm sharing the walk I took with Skywatch Friday.

Excellent shot. Never tried ice fishing, and it's hard for me to imaging what it would be like.
