.:Fantasy Land 2:. by papatheo .:Fantasy Land 2:. by papatheo
Huge broken ice blocks along the shoreline of Peninsula State Park in Door County... about 90 miles north of Green Bay, Wisconsin.
I'm amazed that so few people are around at this time of year to experience the overwhelming magnitude and beauty of this amazing winter event.

:D Thank you!!! That IS really wild out there and many of those ice blocks are around 8 feet long... we missed some 20 footers last winter since we couldn't gain access except by going down a 300foot cliff of ice!

I see the top horns of two dragons while they swim through icebergs with whip cream on top.

Great gallery overall. Preparing myself psychologically for extensive, I hope, winter shooting I really enjoy “Winter at the door” folder.
Personally I prefer above version of this frame mostly because highlights carry much less visual weight. Superb composition gently supported by slightly out of focus background.

Thank you for your comments... I also prefer this version. I need to make the time to clean up my gallery by about 50%!!! :nod:

I would stand there in absolute jaw dropping awe! What an incredible sight to see. Nature always amazes me and what amazes me even more is that people are too busy to notice or appreciate such awesomeness. Thank you for sharing, this is wow!

Thank you very much... every time we are out there [especially in winter] I'm amazed that it isn't covered in photographers [like at Arches National Park in Utah... where you have to clone other photographers out of most of your shots]... and this is only an hour north of Green Bay!!! ;)

:D Cool... plenty of room out there in January and February. If you see a little group of crazies, getting all kinds of serious, shooting at the edge of the ice shove: don't be alarmed, the cold has frozen our brains and we probably will be a little saner next spring!!! :nod:

I'm hoping for a cold enough winter here to get some ice this year. Does that sound crazy? ;)
