The severe cold weather has created both havoc and beauty as it descended on the Midwest, and prompted a trip to the beach to see Lake Michigan.

Moving closer to the water masks the true location where beach meets the water because of all the ice that has accumulated from the water’s spray.
The narrow range of colors from sand, snow, ice, water, waves, and sky creates an subtle mixture of blue, green, white, and brown.
After doing my due diligence of venturing out into the cold to capture some interesting images … I high-tailed it back to the car and cranked up the heat!
