this photo was taken in late november 2011 in pactola lake south dakota. usually the lake froze up before snow piling up, it's been snowing badly for couple days here, and this location just pup up in my mind, i have been to this place for many many times, i have to work all those days and finally i got chance to go after work around 1 o'clock, when i got there it just little bit disappointed fog just too thick i can't see nothing but it stop snowing. so i decided to wait a couple more hours, and soon before sun fully goes down the fogs begun disappear and that when the magic happen beautiful sunset colors steamy water from the cold weather and warm water it's just amazing. i think this is the most beautiful moment i have ever saw in this place. but that beautiful moment not last very long and i gland to witness that magical moment, and more importantly capture that moment forever.
