Reader Tim Argetsinger of Marquette submitted these images, snapped in January before the lower harbor in Marquette froze over. In one, the lower harbor shows some ice fractures illuminated by the rising sun. In the other, local mallards fly away after their morning breakfast. Did you take a great shot of the sunset over the Carp River? Or did you happen to snap a captivating image of wildlife?
