The cool thing about a cold winter is ice on a lake. You can stand on the water and see the shoreline in a whole different way. Sometimes you see beautiful turquoise colors in the ice and of course the magic hour lights up the grasses with a nice contrasting orange. My trip to Standing Bear Lake was during a thin overcast in mid February so the colors aren’t what they could be but the views are still outstanding.
When I shot these photos a week ago I had just accepted a position at Ehrhart Griffin & Associates, a civil engineering company in Omaha. Now, I have completed one week of work there as Senior Civil Project Manager. I am thrilled! The company is great, the people are nice, the work is challenging, the office is close, and we have health insurance! Everything about it is good and I am happy again. It was a painful four months without employment but that is over and in the past. I am grateful for all the people who supported Nancy and I with their thoughts and prayers, we are truly loved.
