SKYWATCH FRIDAY – The Ark in Winter (Lake Erie)
We aren’t quite out of winter’s grasp yet, but there are signs of melting out on the lake. Soon there will be groans and cracks as the breakup begins, and then the torrents below will pour through, flooding the snowy windswept plains and sinking the ranges of piled up ice. Already I’ve seen some gulls, tentatively circling over the frozen terrain, like Noah’s doves, only they are searching for open water.
This photo was taken directly into the bright afternoon light, creating the white and purple beam, descending like a promise.
