Winter Must Be Here

Since we aren't doing the normal Friday hop, I thought I would post more photos I've taken. I'm not a professional so I just shoot away and hope for the best. Although I try to set up some shots, they don't always turn out the way I like. But sometimes I do.

For this post I thought I would show what the weather has been like here. We really haven't had much in the way of snow, but the cold is creeping in. You can see the ice coming. The temperatures have been fairly cold at night and with the last few days of high wind, the wind chill factors have been in the single digits. It is allowing the ice to start building up.

That allows more people to do the favorite past time of the upper Midwest. Yes, ice fishing! It sounds like so much fun. Sitting on ice with the wind blowing across the open area after drilling a hole so you can put your line down. Don't forget that you have to bait your hook and then just sit there.... For hours.... Sounds like fun to me. How about you?

This was my favorite of the ice shots I took. I'm not sure why, but no one knows why I like things. I'm even perplexed about that.

And for some blog hopping fun on a Saturday, check these out!

  1. Lovely photos, but yeah it looks cold. I'd rather stay inside and look at the cold weather from indoors thanks!

    I've never been fishing, but I'd love to have a go, but when it's warm and sunny. :D

  2. I actually would like to go ice-fishing sometime. I think it would be a fun experience even if it was only once. p.s. love the shots-especially the one of the bridge

  3. I would like to just go tell all the ice fishers that they are stupid dummies, or maybe sell coffee and hot chocolate. yeah, maybe we could make a killing.

  4. wow love the shots...and wow it sure looks cold...maybe one day since Bob is up in the lower peninsula of MI maybe we could go watch the ice fishing..

    and I agree with Dazee HOT CHOCOLATE and COFFEE would make a killing

  5. Lovely photos! Seems like you have a natural eye. No ice here in Virginia, but it's brrrrr cold!

    Happy New Year to you and yours!
