I know Bob Shannon likes seeing shots from his ol' Stomping grounds Lake Erie ,and I like taking shots of where I live Lake Erie so it only seems natural that I would send this one out to him!
We had a storm front coming in again and its still here, winds blowing for days. The sound of the wind and the waves crashing on the already building ice is sometimes deafening but funny how when it finally stops I have a hard time sleeping because its too quiet!!

I have good news too, my Husband is bringing his ship to the lay up berth while I'm typing this , I will be picking him up for his winter holidays tomorrow!
Guess whos smiling now!!! :o)

Wow...That lake is one moody place...I remember so well as a kid growing up, sitting on a rowboat 2-3 miles out with my father...for hours and hours...not talking only fishing...not talking was a rule...and cleaning fish seemed to always go to my mother...but dad would talk so much about this cloud and that one..and the colours of such and such..a remarkable place to visit if one knows the right places....or perhaps has the correct memories as I do..

Hi Donna,

The sky is spectacular the way the clouds are shape with the sun trying to get through them. The point of view is giving depth to the photo and showing us the storm is coming with the gray clouds in the background. Well done, thanks for sharing.

Hello Donna,
Splendid image capturing this wonderful scene. So glad you man is coming home for a while, thanks for this wonderful image.

Very nice Donna.
Now that the ship's laid-up, no more worries of your guy being caught in those gales!

You did well capturing this moody, stormy scene. I can feel the cold. I'm glad that you're smiling! I've been away from TN for a while working on a big photo project but I'll check out your recent posts when I can.

Incredible looking cloud formations Donna! I like the ones way off in the distance for the depth effect.Looks cold, but nice for a photographic day.
Best wishes in 2008!

Hi Donna.
Nice touching note and amazing picture which reflects the great nature scene. Light tones and colours are stunning. POV and composition are the best, DOF is great as well as the precise exposure parameters and exposure level. Bravo and best wishes to both of you.

hello donna,
well deserved dedication for bob, i think he is one of the most popular members here at tn and perhaps with maximum dedications in such a small period of time, his impact on tn and all of us is so visible, this shot looks very beautiful and almost monotonus in colours, excellent pov and well composed shot,
well done,
tfs & regards

Hi Donna,
Amazing, grandiose,,wonderfull, impresionnant, les couleurs et la composition sont fantstiques.
Happy new year.

Hi Donna

What a dramatic sky! I love winter scenes like this. Perfect composition and spot on DOF



Hi Donna,
Some dramatic winter sky scenery. A real moody feel to this photograph. Very well composed with a great sense of depth.

Good balance to this picture. Nice look.

Hello Mrs Rasmussen,
I can see bright light in a distance, probably symbolic for spring to come in not too many weeks!
And the attractive clouds are real eye-catchers...
A lovely composition with amazing light!
