During a recent visit to the Sandusky area, we found out about freighters that were frozen in Lake Erie near the bay in Huron, Ohio.

We immediately knew that we wanted to capture some shots of the freighters before and during sunrise. The first challenge was finding a close location to view them from.

Our first location involved a large fence and huge, giant, mounds of snow.

But….that didn’t stop us from taking pictures.

The views were worth the early wake up.

There are some situations that you have to take advantage of in that moment, otherwise you could miss out on them forever.

How many times do we see something and think that we will get back to it only to discover that we forgot about it or we no longer have time to do it or that the moment is no longer there.

I was faced with one of those moments on my way to Sandusky, Ohio. I was driving across the bridge from Northern Kentucky into Cincinnati, Ohio and I noticed how incredible the Ohio River looked frozen over. I was on my way out of town and I knew that there was a good chance that this scene would not be waiting for me when I returned so I decided to quickly deviate my route and take a few minutes to get a few shots of this incredible wonder.

I grew up in the area and this is not a scene that I can recall many times in my lifetime.

I still arrived at my destination on time….but first I had to stop for one more frozen view. This time it was to see 98% frozen Lake Erie in the backyard of Sawmill Creek Resort.

Hope you get to take a little time to enjoy the view where you are.
