The Lake, Last Year and This

I love Lake Michigan in the winter. Yesterday and today, it's been a study in contrasts.

On the last day of 2010, we had freakishly warm weather with temps in the 50s. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Warm air over the cold water made for some very cool looking fog, hovering just off shore.

While I was there, the fog started rolling in over the ice-encrusted beach.

This morning, day one of 2011, the lake had transformed. It was thirty degrees colder and blustery, in other words, back to winter. The lake color was more luminous than the sky. Hard to capture with a camera phone, but it conveys the mood. It was quite beautiful.
