One cold and snowy day I was bored, bored, bored…. Then I remembered a beautiful spot on the lake where I could take pictures. Did I say it was COLD! Good thing I had boots on…the snow was sometimes all the way up to my knees… Wisconsinites do crazy things here like build little shacks on the thick ice and spear for fish. I am too much of a chicken to walk on the lake. Look at this brave soul! It amazes me that everything doesn't just sink into the water. I mean…how do they KNOW the ice is thick enough? Scary! But probably a perfect day for catching Walleye. If you have never had Walleye you are definitely missing something. The macro lover in me just had to take a shot of something! I can't wait for our world to bloom here…you know how addicted to flowers I am! Thank goodness for evergreen trees and the red oak…at least some color. A fallen comrade… I felt watched over. The last red oak leaves hang on. They drop their foliage in the spring.
