WVPE's latest Photo of the Week captures an icy image that the photographer took on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, in Shipshewana. Cyndi Holther of Sturgis was inspired to take this shot by laying on the cold sidewalk to get just the right angle. To quote her, "Brrr!" She calls the photo "Glass Houses." 

We'd love to see what you are taking photos of.
