For Family Day weekend, we decided to once again head to Rice Lake. While our cottage is closed for the winter, we reserved a cabin at Elmhirst Resort, which is sort of becoming a third home (second home being our own cottage, lol). The weekend was also an early gift for my birthday and - coincidentally - Valentine's Day.
We beat the forecasted snow squalls, arriving at Elmhirst mid-afternoon. After we got ourselves settled and I finished up some work-related tasks, it wasn't long before I was itching to go for a walk with my camera.
As in the summer the weather can change quickly on Rice Lake; when I left the cottage, it was overcast, but the sun - starting to set - was still peeking through. Within minutes of me setting up my camera, the lake had transformed to white-out conditions! I literally had to turn my lens to face the north end of the lake, or risk the front filter being coated in snow.
