I published a similar picture a few months ago, but I've made some changes to this version which will hopefully make it a bit more interesting.
I hope so, anyway...

PS: Yellowknife is the - what do you guys call it - trailhead (?) for the ice road.
During the season a truck leaves Yellowknife, on average every four minutes, around the clock. Beb.

Why what? Why were we there?
No particular reason - just to see what was there.
We had seen the ice road trucker series on TV and were curious about the terrain and operating conditions. We spent six days in Yellowknife, did as much exploration of the surroundings as we were able, and enjoyed every minute of it. Would we go back? If someone offered me a job there I'd go back in a flash... any job offers anyone? :)

not prying but ...WHY?...LOL
-26C = -14.8F
-15F = -26.11C
South East - Toledo Ohio....

@mefmouse

Yep, I took the picture, so I guess I was there! ;)
October/November 2017. -14C to -20C were common while we were there.
Coldest was -26C with chill factor of -10, so effectively -36C.
What does that translate to in Fahrenheit?
What does -15F translate to in Celsius?
46 hours' driving time - in which direction?
Yes, good distance eyesight would be an essential to bird spotting.

Were you there(Great Slave Lake)? you were only 46 hours by car to my place...LOL. was it during the winter? - I just looked it's -15 F there right now....

God blessed me with great eyes (knees/hearing not so much). I'm 61 and still have close to 20/20 vision -
I use glasses while on the computer - just as an assist - my far vision is that of a 20 year old....- works out great when Birding.

Thanks fjed. Can you imagine living there? Beb.

A really interesting picture and puzzle. Thanks for sharing.

Your tonal differentiation is VERY acute! There's not much difference!
I pride myself on being pretty good at tone/colour matching, but I hadn't noticed it until you pointed it out. Since then I've pulled up another copy of the puzzle and compared sky pieces with ice pieces - yes, there is a difference, but (to my eye, at least) it's very subtle. :) Beb.

Where are you? B.

Great Slave Lake, Yellowknife, North West Territories, Canada.

mefmouse

there is a bit of difference in the shade of white- delineating sky from Ice

Where was this pic taken?

@mefmouse

Hey mef!

You've certainly put my time to shame this time!
Actually, with all the white space in this one, I was thinking about you.
It is certainly a puzzle for shape recognition. I think I'll try again...

Thank you @toms1808 . It was also a very novel experience for us Aussies to actually walk across the ice to the boats! We were very ginger about it at first, but were quite enjoying the freedom of the experience by the end of the afternoon. I will send you a link to the picture I took during my very first walk on the ice. I took EVERY STEP of that walk with great trepidation! :D Beb.
