Ice Storm 2

Norway spruce
I like the way the ice magnifies the needles.
maple buds
 crabapples (taken with the flash)
more maple buds (taken with the flash)

Happy New Year!

Wow. This is why I can't help but love a good ice storm. Gorgeous!

These are so beautiful, Ann! They take the sting out of all the tough times surrounding that ice storm.

I love the stark beauty of nature in winter. Right now I'm staring out my window at pine tree boughs smothered with snow.

I like the ones with the flash best. I wouldn't have thought of using it. But I will now.

Rebecca: The ice looked a lot prettier once our power was restored. Ruth: Thank you. I was trying to make the best of a tough situation.
Kim: It's quite austere around here these days.
Tim: Zach always suggests taking pics with and without flash. I like the way the ice becomes more transparent and the colors come alive with extra light.
