Poirier Lake is one of those places that I love to stop by for a nice little break, where there always seems to be something of interest to photograph. It is not often there is more than the things of layers of ice around the edges of the lake, but with temperatures hovering just below the freezing mark for a little while, the ice is now thicker than I’ve seen it and covers the entire surface of the lake.
It was about a degree below freezing with just enough of a breeze to make it seem much cooler down at Sandcut Beach, but the sun was out and it was a beautiful day for photography. Look out from the beach and on most days you can see the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state. I have heard there and many excellent photographic opportunities there and hope to check it out myself some time in the future.
