    Well i was on the beach looking across the Lake...Its Shelf ice as they call it...Those big mounds are Ice. If that makes sense...The ice across the tall mounds is the lake with a layer of ice on it.

    That is so weird... I've never been somewhere when its cold enough to do that.
    Nice shots! I really like the one where you can see the city.

    I am in Cleveland on Lake Erie, so this is a familiar sight to me!

    I like the last two photos the best, as there is more interest to them. The first several are pretty much straight on shots with the horizon in the center, and composition like that does not excite me, so perhaps views looking down the beach like the second to last photo might be more interesting. The sky was dreary that day I can see, but I think some of these photos could really pop if they were taken around sunrise or sunset, to add some vibrant color into them.

    I just saw you were in New York and figured it was there.
