Frozen  |  Quake Lake, Montana |  December 2016

Given that it's almost in my backyard, I should really visit Quake Lake during the summer months when there might be wildflowers or something else to photograph instead of always coming here in the winter and photographing the frozen, icy landscape.  But of course, the dead trees rising from the lake's surface tend to add more of that dreadful wintry feel.  The lake only recent froze over but some areas were snow free where the wind had blown it clear.  And there were still a couple of spots were the lake wasn't yet frozen.  Of course, that was before a winter storm came through and dropped two to three feet of fresh snow and temperatures dipped down to minus 30° F.  Sunrise is my preferred time to visit though I imagine sunset is equally pretty and perhaps I'll head out here soon for a sunset.  This was taken at 40mm, 1/125 at f16 and ISO 800, handheld.
