Joe Kirkish is at it again, sending several shots he took over the weekend, so that those of you that can't be here at Great Sand Bay, can still get the feeling that you're standing right there in person. We're looking out at Lake Superior, but instead of her usual blue, she's shrouded in snow and ice that quiets the shoreline, changing the water to winter white.

Joe's second shot is taken just a little more to the left of the first photo. Interesting capture, with a volleyball net standing alone on the shore as a reminder that warmer weather (and the Big Lake, too) will be back before you know it. Thanks for sharing the view with us, Joe.

It looks a little chilly for beach volleyball!

Great Sand Bay is my dog's favorite place in the world.

Do you think they would use a large snowball with that volleyball net in the winter?

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, February 13, 2009 - 07:11 am:

Not much of a challenge to get the volleyball over that net.....

Snowmen and snowwomen play snow volleyball there at night by the light of the moon and stars!

I wonder if they use different colored balls since white would be hard to see. That reminds me of an old golfing joke, but I won't get into that now.

Being vertical challenged (4'11") that net is just about the right height for me!

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, February 13, 2009 - 09:42 am:

Janie we could go play and it would be fair, but I do have 1/2" on you. Surprised its still up, I always like Joes pictures.

Volleyball on snowshoes -- I wonder how well THAT would work!

Clarks Point and Joe Kirkish. A worthy combination! It became my screen saver...

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Friday, February 13, 2009 - 05:52 pm:

I'm getting 2 a loss 4 words, as the pics here are beautiful.

Thanks for the cool images, Joe--

With fond memories of Lake Superior...
