“Sunset on Ice”

This is 333 photos merged into one image using the lighten layer-blending mode in photoshop, automated with this script, advancedstacker.com, I also faded in the first 19 photos using 5% increments of the layer opacity.
I like how the rough ice and snow catches the colours of the setting sun, and the criss-crossing of the clouds is always fun.

“Frosted Lakes”
In the winter of 2014-2015 the great lakes were “frosty” to put it lightly. “The maximum ice coverage on the Great Lakes of 86.2% was reached in the fourth week of February, which represents the fifth highest value in recorded history.”
I shot this timelapse almost two months before the cold snap, during a warm spell in the beginning of January.
