Some WInter Pics from the Last Couple Weeks

I took these pictures on the coldest morning of the year, I think it was only a couple degrees. The unfrozen part of the lake, between the mouth of the Niagara River and the ice boom, was creating a freezing fog that led to the trees being coated in a layer of ice.

Unfortunately after a month of below average temperatures it went up to 40 degrees on the day of the tournament. The ice quality was terrible, huge cracks were starting to appear everywhere. I didn't hang around too long.

Testing the thickness of the ice.
