Ice Fishing: for Watery Wednseday

Perhaps this might be stretching the theme just a bit for the water is frozen. But this is a fishing area at this time of year and the little buildings out on the ice are ice fishing shacks. And if you're not yet convinced that this is a watery area, just look at the lighthouse on the shore!

The theme of Watery Wednesday is water, and for a wonderful variety of watery scenes just click on its name! Thanks to 2sweetnsaxy for hosting this site.

I think it's fitting. Ice is just frozen water. It's kind of amazing to see this lighthouse surrounded by snow and ice.

Ice and snow are both water. ;-)

Very nice photo of the lighthouse.

Unfortunately, I know all to much about the white stuff! Strange how all the huts are clustered so close together!
Thanks for sharing!

Well, ya go with what ya got! And I think there's something neat about the lighthouse with the piles of plowed-up snow! Really pretty shot.

Not stretching it at all. Very nice capture.

I never really experienced frozen water until moving to WI and it's so much fun! :)

That is a neat lighthouse, and I see there must be a really good fishing spot there just off shore. The fishing on Lake Erie has been good too this year, but as much as I like fishing it's way too cold out there for me, even with the ice huts.

This is a neat wintry picture for Watery Wednesday. I really like it.

Having been born and raised ''in the shadow'' of a lighthouse on Long Island Sound and now living in a place were ice fishing is popular, the two subjects in this photo are heart warming. Recently spent a few days in Rimouski, Québec, the Pointe-aux-Pères Lt. on my right and the fishing shacks on my left, with w8indchill and blowing snow making for some fabulous photography.

(You know you are a lighthouse person when the foghorn goes off at night and you do not hear it)

Kind of like if you live in a railroad town you don't even wake when the train rumbles by and shakes your house.
