Top Shot: On the Lookout | Photograph by Trevor Pottelberg (@trevorpottelberg)
#YourShotPhotographer Trevor Pottelberg was photographing Lake Erie when he captured this massive wave exploding out from the murky depths during the passage of an arctic cold font. “Wow! This is a pretty epic scene to capture,” writes Your Shot producer Matt Adams (@themattadams), who selected this image for the December 13, 2017 Daily Dozen. “You can just feel the sheer force of the wave as it crashes against the wind here. I can only imagine how cold it was when this image was captured and it’s amazing that your camera survived the elements.”
