Pier on WI River as ice begins to form


11/15/13.  The ice is just beginning to form along the banks of the WI River, in zip 54501.  This is a wide part of the waterway, and relatively shallow.  The current is less than swift.

I was sitting at home one night and noticed the sun getting lower in the sky and casting a very warm glow.  I immediately took off for the nearest spot to effectively capture it, the nearby Boom Lake.  In this shot I used center metering and exposed for the sun’s reflection in the water.  I also cranked up the color temp in manual mode to exaggerate the warmness.
