The earlier video post of the lake freezing was shot about a week before this photo. There was a see-saw battle between the ice and the open water for about a week; wind and temperature influencing who was winning, but finally, on December 5, the lake had officially entered its next season. This sunrise illuminating the new ice shows a meandering line that delineates a shelf of old ice from the brand new ice formed that night. Look at how smooth the ice is; for a skater this could be a very enticing photograph. Time to dig out the skates?
