Last Sunday there was an unusually windy afternoon near Lake Michigan with gusts in the 40 mph range. I decided to see how the lake’s waves were as they came in on a frozen beach. I was surprised by the intensity of those waves as well as the color variations as the sun lit them from behind.

I decided to create this image in grayscale, emphasizing the high contrast.
As the sun neared the horizon, the color of the water turned golden.
And as the sun ended the day, the color became more intense.
