Pebbles in a Blanket

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 29 January 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Taking a break from capturing all the aliens on the lakefront, here is a quick shot I captured of the shoreline where the waves were lapping over these pebbles, which were in their own "individually-wrapped" blankets of ice. Seeing how each pebble was encapsulated rather than in a sheet or block of ice caught my eye.
