Long Thaw Sky

Our long winter thaw began on Sunday when it hit 50˚, and will keep bouncing around until April.

The sky was showing the slightest color over Lake Wingra an hour or so before sunset today.

There were more generous sepia tones watching over the ice fishermen on  Lake Monona. These guys will stay perched on the thinnest strip of ice long after things start melting. They remind me of those bald eagles floating down the Mississippi.


  1. Hello, I am always amazed to see the ice fishing. I would be scared to be out walking on the ice. I like the scene in the first photo, very peaceful. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  2. Thanks, LF.
    They still amaze me too, Eileen and I used to do a bit of ice fishing myself. Never caught anything of course, lol.

  3. Yikes, I can't even imagine being out there fishing on the ice. Perhaps if I had one of those little huts and a heater...

    1. They have heaters and grills and coolers and layers and beer. Not so much with the die hards out there in with little gear and a hardy attitude.
