Aerial Views Reveal Nature at Work

Catawba Ice

East Sand Road, Catawba Island

Carole Gorski made a quick business trip to Put-in-Bay today–all of three hours, round-trip.  However, the aerial views she captured will preserve forever nature’s stunning, early ice formation near Catawba Island.  The photos were taken in full-color; however, the lack of color is a byproduct of the winter season.  A little bit of blue is visible at Miller Boat Line’s Catawba Dock.  Click on the image for high-resolution detail!
