The setting sun shines through the ice on the shore of a frozen Lake Superior, traversed by Your Shot member Ernie Vater to reach this spot. “Part of the beauty of this place is the silence of it,” he writes of the ice caves at the Apostle Islands National Lakeshore near Bayfield, Wisconsin.
“You hear nothing except the occasional creaking of the ice (which can make you jump if it’s right under you). There were a few times when I just stopped and enjoyed the quiet. In this spot the only sounds were the water drops splashing.”
