Each year, Lake Winnipesaukee freezes for the long New England winter. Shutting out all but the bravest. In the spring, the lake sheds the ice in a matter of a few days. If the spirits wish, and you are very fortunate, one of those days the ice does not melt to water, it sublimates directly to low clouds. Those days are very rare. They teach you something about aesthetics and chemistry. These photos are from one of those days.
