Winter took a break this week, leaving us with some grey days full of mud and fog. Yesterday things cleared up a little for some hours and I took a short break from the various Christmas preparations to see if there was some ice left on the Schlei.

And indeed there was surprisingly much, after some days with temperatures around 5 Celsius. On a little beach in a mini-bay near Stexwig there was a lot of crushed ice collected, forming a white line that was constantly moving in the waves.

I went some steps into the water with my rubber boots, put the camera down just above the water surface (thanks to the very usable live view of the Nikon D7000 with a horizontal level indicator) and shot several bursts of photos, hoping to get some sharp ones with the long-ish shutter speeds between 1/15 and 1/10 of a second. I got some nice photos with the ice dominating in the foreground, showing the movement of the water.
