“All journeys have secret destinations of which the traveler is unaware.” -Martin Buber
So I may have mentioned a quick and last minute trip I took to explore the Ice Caves last week up in Northern Wisconsin. Not exactly a place that the average South Floridian flocks to in the peak of winter, but I’m not normal!
I have been hearing a lot about this place as this year was the first time in about 5 years that lake Superior has frozen up enough to allow visitors to make the over 1 mile hike across the ice to see it!
Here are a few quick images I processed that I kinda like. I used a totally different workflow with these as I didn’t feel that Photomatix was giving me a realistic enough result. HDR EFX2 by Nik Effects (now google) was what did the trick for me. More on that in a future post and video so stay tuned!
Also, more images from this amazing place soon!
As with any trip, half the fun is prep and planning. As a Floridian, the thought of those below freezing temps had me a bit concerned. A quick walk into the closet was all I needed to realize that I needed to make a quick run over to the local Peter Glenn store to get a cold weather clothing plan together!
Matt Kloskowski did a great post about prepping for these situations as well over here so make sure and check that out as well!
I created this video yesterday for my Quick Tip Tuesday about what worked and didn’t work for me.
