The natural world around me, both a few steps and a few miles, away.

A teenager went out, yesterday, on the ice shelf at Webster Park that I just photographed last week.
Unfortunately, he fell through and was in the water for about 10 minutes, before he was rescued. He's in the hospital, suffering from severe hypothermia. I hope he recovers completely. I can see where something like this would be a terrible temptation to youngsters, who still think that they're immortal. But, selfishly perhaps, I hope that they don't cordon off the area because of this. And, I hope the town isn't faced with a big lawsuit.
