Lake Erie Shoreline: Earth or Moonscape?


A desert? The Arctic? Mountains? Or maybe more exotic...like the surface of another world? No, not really.  It's actually the shoreline of Lake Erie during an early March thaw. 
 

I wanted to get some shots of it while it still had ice and snow on it, but the wind usually comes from the north so it's normally too cold to stand on the shore.  Today, the wind was coming from the south so I was able to comfortably capture some pictures before it all melted away. 


It's a bit hard to tell, but the hills are caused by the wave motion on the shoreline. Snow and sand mix to create a waterscape of dunes capped with snow.


Here's a better perspective of what it looks like...you can see the beach this way and the other views are while looking out at the frozen water.


It's was a bit surreal...even I had to remind myself where I was.



A special place though.   Glad I was able to get these photos.

Blessings!

  12. I'm stopping by from the "Waste Not Want Not" blog hop. You have got to be a neighbor of mine - those beautiful pictures look totally like the Luna Pier area!!! Although I realize that the Lake Erie shoreline looks the same no matter where you are on Lake Erie -hahahahaha.
    Thanks
