However, the sun was setting and there was one ice fishing house delightfully in the light of the setting sun.
To get to a decent picture taking zone I had to walk out on the lake. No matter how many times I do it, it always feels weird. Knowing that trucks drive out on the ice should give me comfort, they don't break through so certainly a person will be fine. But I still find it a bit disconcerting each time I walk out.
But I got my shot. Bonus, this is the first shot I have published where I did not use auto mode on the camera. (I have been playing with programming mode and aperature and shutter priority mode for a few weeks now, but this is the first time I have liked the picture I got on manual better than a shot taken in auto. Yeah for advancing in skills!)
