Joe Kirkish was once again UP North checking out the Big Lake conditions and sent in these photos. He mentioned that he had never before noticed the "shades of blue in the lake scenes: sky, water, snow, & ice. Then startlingly, the contrasting browns of the rocks not yet covered over." I also noticed the sea of ice and how far out it seems to reach in the first photo, then in the other two, there is barely any ice except right near the rocks and closer to the shore. What a difference a few weeks make when it comes to ice on Lake Superior. Check out Joe's photos from February 24th and note the difference in the ice cover from then, until now. In just a few weeks more, it'll be going back the other way once again, melting and returning to rock and sandy shores. Daylight is lasting longer each day now.

Speaking of daylight, here's an early reminder: This weekend we switch back to Daylight Savings Time once again. So don't forget to "Spring" forward one hour Saturday night.

Blue and white...out of sight! Now I'm waiting for the blue and green.
March winds bring April showers, April showers bring May flowers and May flowers bring.......pilgrims :)

The green is coming! But in the meantime, blue and white are definitely beautiful! Great pics today.

And May brings that word airbrushed someplace on the Wing? :D

I just this morning changed my computer wallpaper to a scene taken from a previous PastyCam posting that I titled "UP Waterfall"; it shows flowing water, green vegetation and sunshine. But I agree that these are beautiful and that the second picture in particular is nice.
