The Cold Light of Dawn

This is my contribution to the Cosmic Photo Challenge: The cold light of day prompt.

Being a morning person and as dawn and sunrise is frequently the coldest part of the day I decided to go with a small selection of photos taken at dawn in winter and featuring ice or snow.

Thanks Dale. To be honest I had too many to choose from which is why I went with dawn in winter. It narrowed down the selection and I could go for various locations and variety in the snow and ice.

Now I’m wondering if I shouldn’t have gone with a sequence of photos from a few years ago when the local bay froze, thawed, refroze before the wind blew the ice out of the bay and then blew it back in. I’ll have to try to remember that idea for a post.

I’ve never seen them on the local bay but when I lived close to Lake Huron we had some one winter at least. You quickly realise that no two winters are the same as regards the way the lakes and bays freeze up.

Thanks Ann-Christine. I don’t know if I would be prepared to stand around at -30°C while the sun rose these days. But when I was living in Saskatchewan, Canada that was the norm in winter.

I got a touch of frostbite a couple of winters ago. My body doesn’t seem to handle the cold as well as I get older.
