Breakup, Yellowstone Lake (Sigma DP2s)

 

Breakup, Yellowstone Lake: May 28, 2010

Sigma DP2s

This is about the time of year when the Chukchi Sea begins to break up along the shores of Kotzebue.

It coincides with breakup on our version of an arctic ocean, Yellowstone Lake, which is the largest alpine lake in the United States.

That forest on the opposite shore in the photo above, really isn’t on the opposite shore. It’s an island. The opposite shore is way, way, way out there. Here’s a shot of the opposite shore:
