When the lake freezes over

Frozen lake in winter
The last week has been more of a proper winter. With temperatures staying low it's meant that the countryside has taken on a new look; a frozen landscape. I've captured far more with my eyes than my lens but each picture is a memory shared. The lake froze in part, we could see the ice had not quite made it the full stretch of the surface but instead gave a crisp crust to the surface, like a fragile shell. Miniature waves rippled almost imperceptibly through open water, giving proof that time has not quite frozen in that very second.
