Wind from the north had blown ice back towards the shore and piled it onto some rocks.
I silhouetted these trees against the western sky.
The sun wasn't out long, before disappearing behind clouds.
For the next half an hour it stayed mostly hidden.

compose the shot,
find a little light and color,
and just keep on shooting.
I only had forty minutes to shoot what I could,
before the sun set and darkness fell over Lake Superior. Today it was just long enough
