    I was on a day off from work and we were still in a deep freeze. I knew the lake would be frozen over and that sunrise was at a reasonable hour. It had to be done, so making my way to the park an hour before sunrise to figure the best location for the frozen lake gave me plenty of time when I got there to see the shot I wanted. Using a fishing perch with some ice on top of one of the legs it gave me a good reference points for the centre of shot, all I had to do was wait for the sun to rise.
