"Third Time's the Charm" by papatheo "Third Time's the Charm" by papatheo
Our third time out on the Lake Michigan ice. We were on the road at 3:20 and arrived at Harrington Beach in time to catch a lot of the predawn light. [This shot is from a little later but there will be plenty to come]
I was holding on to the ridge crest with my elbows and dug in with my knees and toes to keep from sliding from my vantage point.

* I am in danger only of sliding backwards... away from the lake. My difficulty is in trying to stay on the crest because of the slippery conditions.

not here. Its cold and rainy. You would never know it was summer. What a bummer. When you go back you be careful. No more hanging off of cliffs. Although the shots are awesome. :giggle:
