Ice at Swanson Reservoir – Julie Geiser

My drive to Swanson Reservoir today made for a great scenic day! It was a bit windy but despite the wind it was beautiful. The lake is open with ice only along the north edge of the lake. Come on walleye!! Anyway…for some reason I was totally infatuated by the ice that had gathered along the edge of the reservoir. The video and pictures I took do not do the scene justice. It literally looked like diamonds floating on top of the water, riding the waves. The sound those diamond-like ice chunks made was very peaceful as the wave clashed them together and they glistened in the sun just like sparkly diamonds.IMG_0029
