Hey natalie, welcome to HSO/FM. Great to see you sharing photos with us here!

I particularly like the last and second-to-last images. They are excellent compositions. I think the second-to-last could be made even stronger by cropping out the bottom 1/4 of the image, which would draw the eye more directly to the action and drama of the waves.

Very nice work! 2606293692_ebc31a3a1a_o.gif

I have to agree with Steve, as the last two are my picks as well.

Natalie, Great to have you here. Those are some really cool shots of Lake Superior. I have never been there in the winter. I was in Silver bay last weekend and took some good shots but those snow pics ROCK!!

Thank you for sharing.

If I remember right the last pic is from one of our April Storm's 2 springs ago. Some really nice pics were taken by others when the water was going under the ice bridge and bursting 20-30ft in the air up against the ice. It was something very spectacular.

Nat-did you and Weeze get out fishing last Sunday at all. He was talking about heading down to the Knife.

Yeah that was from that storm. Jeremy and I went down there with some friends and got ALOT of pictures! For the fishing, we actually went out today and it was BEAUTIFUL! I thought for sure we would need to bust out the winter gear but we were in shorts and t-shirts pretty much the whole time!

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
