Wind spiraled around this cirque while the lake froze, trapping waves at their crest.
The ice was only about 2 inches thick, but my friend assured me that it was enough to hold us. I wasn't so sure though when pings and other noises like sonar started echoing under us. Then my friend slipped and cracked the ice and his head. Luckily, the ice didn't give!
This is a composite of 7 f 2.8 exposures. Like my previous aurora image, this is one exposure for the aurora and mountains and 6 at different focal points for the foreground blended in post.
