Frozen Erie Lakescapes

This morning I visited a friend who lives a few short blocks from Lake Erie. Because it was  a beautiful morning, I couldn’t resist stopping by Lake Overlook Park on my way home. Only one other person was walking along the trail from the lake to the parking lot. Noticing my camera, she remarked that high noon is not the best time to take pictures. “Come back in the early morning or around sunset,” she suggested. However, this was the time I had planned to visit my friend, and I was determined to take advantage of this opportunity to grab a  few pictures of the snow-covered lake. So I walked on down the trail to the lake, and here is what I saw:

Fortunately, I had no plans to access the beach area! Continuing my walk, I stayed well away from the edge of the cliff. Tumbling into a frozen Lake Erie was not on my agenda for the morning. Here are a few pictures I captured on that short walk. I hope you enjoy them.

High noon or not, I am glad I stopped by the lake today, but I will go back for another photo walk along that cliff…when the sun is setting.  I’m looking forward to comparing those pictures to today’ high noon captures.

Thanks for visiting Lake Erie with me today.
