My apologies for taking so long to get back to you (and for accidentally killing the photograph I had posted here ). As I noted in the "Frosty Morning" thread, I've been away for a bit.
Sounds like you had a GREAT weekend!! :: I take it the girlfriend that went in and the fiancee that came out were one in the same person . Congratulations!! It was a great day! Funny you mentioned that though - I too went into the parking lot at Cyprus Lake, right where it meets the lake itself. I wonder if we actually crossed paths at one point? I do a lot of shooting up that way now so perhaps we can team up at some point and hit all the high spots (pun intended - sorry ). I've not skiied in that region for years, but I have been carrying my snowshoes most places I go. Next winter I really want to get down to the Bay once the snow is lying deep on the ground, but preferably before the ice comes in. That can make for some really spectacular photography, even on gray days, with the open water and the snow, as I'm sure you know.
Many thanks for the comments, and if you'd like to get together for some photography at some point, or just to yak, by all means drop me a line from here or at my website. Good stuff Chad, and once again, CONGRATS!
