Ice

Early this morning a cold rain began falling, blanketing our area in covering of ice.


After the rain had stopped and with temperatures on the rise I took the opportunity to photograph some of the beauty left in the storms wake. The falling water drop creates a blur in this photograph. Shutter speed 1/160th sec.

A lonely leaf that has yet to fall finds itself partially incrusted in ice


The bright colors of these berries, which I believe to be American Bittersweet, are made even vibrant by the icy sheath.

These are all nice shots. It reminds me that we had just rain the last time and I am guessing it ended up being your ice.

Great shots, Coy.

We had some of the same stuff up here. Made a real mess on the roads. Traffic was all snarled up and there were lot's of fender benders around. Over 700 calls we made to 911 that morning! Medic Units, and Engine Company's didn't know who or where to go first!
