Lake effect. by maggie2

Lake effect.

I live in an area that is in a snow belt. The wind travels over the open waters of the lake and creates snow squalls, if the temperature is cold enough. The squalls can drop major snow or pass in a moment.
We are in a lake effect pattern today and yesterday. I don't really mind it's just fun to try and capture it in photos. This was just before the squall started. Sun shining and snow.
WOW! Amazing lighting!!

I think it's kind of eerie & unsettling, the prelude to a horror movie. I like it!

That is eerie but beautiful. We had squalls in our area today too.
