We first wandered on a short trail that led toward the beach. Since some wet snow had just fallen, the branches along the path were adorned in water droplets.
Then we got to the shoreline and the sand was lightly covered in snow. Despite the wind and waves, the beach felt very peaceful and quiet.
There was a decent amount of branches along the shore and if you got lucky, you might find a seashell. Although I've seen Presque Isle several times in the fall and spring, it was interesting seeing these elements covered in a bit of snow. Even though everything was a little gray-looking, I like how it sets the mood. It gives the photos a different feel than what you'd usually associate with a beach.
These last few images are probably my favorites. I fussed around with shooting these a lot but I'm pretty happy with the outcome. They remind me a little of a tilt-shift effect, but I did not edit them at all. By getting low to the ground (and my handy flip out LCD screen), I was able to capture these.
