What an awesome picture Mike. The framing of the foreground really gives it perspective and I love the fog/mist/steam coming off the lake. Fantastic!

Thanks. In order to get those "hills" in the foreground to show up, I had to have the sun just rising behind me to create shadows. The mist rising was because it was very cold. That is the mist that rises over Lake Michigan to create Lake effect snow. The ship was our neighbor night and day for three days.
