Break of Dawn
The rising sun begins to peek from behind the Pier Light at Algoma, WI. The below zero temperatures caused steam to rise off of Lake Michigan. Even with the bitter cold temperatures, the gentle movement of the waves from the lake keep the harbor from freezing solid.
This was a tricky shot to get. I had to climb down the ice-covered, rock embankment of the marina to get as close to the harbor surface as possible.
The most amazing thing about this image, to me, is that I was able to capture this with my old camera. My Kodak Easyshare DX7590 was a decent camera but far from a DSLR.
I was honored to have this photo featured on a prominant photography website – Earthshots.org. See it HERE.
