Smile Truck on frozen lake

I went out this morning to get some pictures of my truck on frozen Lake Temiskaming... it was un fortunetly overcast so i didn't get a nice sunrise like i had hopped































I think the night shots turned out well, i just used the night setting on my camera and put it on a tripod, but all of the other shots are kind of grainy, i used the natural light setting and a tripod... any tips on getting clearer shots???

Lots of ice huts out on the lake now, during the day it is like a little town out there with the ice huts and trucks and snowmobiles


Anyone else have a frozen body of water around them?? Post some pics in here if you do!

for better shots while snowing, try an off the camera flash....along with turning off your headlights, your camera will pick up the light and cause lots of focus issues with all those pieces of light reflecting back into the camera.....but good, keep it up, it only gets easier/better

nope, when it is -35 Celsius all winter it is definitely frozen. Every year the lake freezes and it becomes a playground for snowmobiles as well as a home away from home for people that enjoy the sport of ice fishing, there is always trucks or sleds parked outside the ice huts... some people even use the frozen water to drive from Ontario to Quebec

people are told to get their ice huts off the lake by the first of april though


thanks guys for all the comments

oh and STL there is a weather warning for tonight and tomorrow because of extreme cold... it is going to be -45 Celsius if you factor in the wind chill.... if your skin is uncovered you can get frostbite within 5 minutes eh!
