This photo was shot at Boyd Lake State Park on one of the coldest days of the winter. Walking out onto the ice, I found a dad and his young son ice fishing. After taking some shots of them fishing for about ten minutes, the boy lost interest and started to play in the snow. Still taking some frames of the dad fishing, I noticed the boy  making snow angles about 10 feet away. Quickly resetting my exposure, with a f/stop of 22,  and a shutter speed of 125, I moved into position. This setting would give me enough depth of field to get the boy and his dad in focus while also stopping the boys arm movement.
