This sunrise shot was taken over Clinton Lake, from the Bloomington Park area. The large ice plates, constantly in motion with the water under them, were making a moaning sound the entire time I was there; a bit like whale sounds. Along with the sounds of constant ice cracking, I didn’t stay out over the ice for too long. HDR stack created in Photomatix Pro; styling was added in Lightroom and textures added in Photoshop. Brought back into Lightroom for final touches.
