Returning from the Field by papatheo Returning from the Field by papatheo
Post sunset at Peninsula State Park in Door County, about an hour and a half north of Green Bay. My wife :iconariseandrejoice: coming in from the "shove" [the locals' word for an ice field that's pushed to the shoreline]. The conditions were ultra icy and the light was going fast... so I retraced my steps and only walked where I'd walked before [lots of large ice blocks buried under yesterday's blowing snow].

Oh, my gosh... this is absolutely beautiful. I love the colors. And this is just outside of Green Bay? I may have to make a special trip sometime to visit this place. Of all the years I've seen winter, I have never seen anything as stunning as this.

You have really captured a gorgeous side of winter in spite of the bitter cold. I just can't find the words to describe this deviation other than absolutely beautiful and very breath-taking.

Overall, I give you 5 stars for vision, 5 stars for originality, 5 stars for technique, and 5 stars for imapct.
What do you think?

Wow, this is so unreal! The colors are so prominent that it really looks like a photoshop landscape, but It's NOT!

**Gapes**

The sheer size of the ice as well as the bright coloration makes it so eerie looking, and forboding. But it's just... STUNNING!

I really want to go to Wisconsin now... This is just BEAUTIFUL!

I'd have to invest into some serious spike boots!

We both bought "Yak Tracks" which fit over your boots at Menard's [around $20] and at Gander Mountain I bought some cleated sandals which are really good on ice but they are one size fits all and that guy must be Paul Bunyon!
