Rhinelander, WI.  1/28/2014.  Minus 20 degrees, raw temp., minus 43 wind chill.  This is just downwind of the paper mill, and the steam from the stacks was blowing through, clinging to the trees in the form of thick frost.  Visually stunning and a real bitch on exposed skin.

Northern Wisconsin, USA.  Grrrr.  The fishing opener is the first Sat. in May.  We WILL be ice fishing, as reports say there’s still 2 ft. of ice on most lakes.  We got 2″ of snow last night, and as pissed off as people are, it is actually quite stunning.  I took a short walk with my camera, Boxer-dog in-tow, and snapped some detail shots.  Hopefully this is winter’s last hurrah.  We’ve all had enough.
