blue skies and icy trees - 13 December 2007

When my sister and mom came to visit, two days after our big ice storm...we took pictures. Well, my SISTER took pictures with her oh-so-awesome Canon EOS 350D Rebel XT D-SLR...and I told her what to take pictures of, lol!

So, I can't take credit for actually TAKING these pictures, only for helping to compose them, and for the editing.

Encased in ice. Lest you wonder, there is about 1/2
inch of ice on those branches. 13 December 2007

The tunnel of icy trees. Both my sister and I knew we
had to get pictures of this road, it was like a glass-encased
tunnel. 13 December 2007

These are increible photos! The ice was amazing, wasn't it?!?! My pop has some pictures he took of the ice in Iowa City... tall grasses standing straight up with that thick coat of ice... and the grasses are all in their fall yellow color surrounded by snow. (Might just have to dig and see if I have any of those photos of his to post!) Have a great weekend!

Wow! We don't have ice storms out here, but that looks horrid (and beautiful).

Some will think I'm crazy, but I think ice storms are just so beautiful. They wreck havock like nothing else, but the beauty of them is like nothing else as well!
