Freezing Lake - Canon 40d w/200mm

Winter seems to be early this year, it's already below freezing at night and the first snow is forecast for the morning. This was taken in January and shows a small bird making its way through freezing mist on Lake Ontario. It was -20 something that morning even before wind chill!

    I instantly want to be at home for two reasons now:

    1. Having a cup of hot wine sitting on the balcony imagining such a winterscape.
    2. Being able to add this masterpiece to my VFXY collection. Best shot I have seen in quite a while.

    That looks like a loon. That you have loons on the lake in January makes me a little bit jealous. The fact this is gorgeous shot does the same! ;-)
