Today’s picture is not a technical masterpiece, but rather its the location that is interesting to me.

This is the North shore of Lake Superior a few years ago. As you might be able to tell from the barrier and other clues, those people you see in the shot are standing on the frozen surface of the lake itself. The entire lake doesn’t freeze, but in cold winters, it freezes out a fair distance from shore.

Yes, Minnesotans are crazy in winter.
