Ya like that? See what I did there?
In keeping with the bipolar weather (and I mean that literally since we are going from bitter cold to so mild you don't need a jacket), we had a small/minor icy rainstorm one night and we woke up to a thin but pretty layer of ice on everything. Not enough to be destructive....well that is until it started falling off wires and bridges as the morning warmed up (we had a dicey drive to Sandwich and home, narrowly missing chunks that were crashing to the road in front and behind us), but enough to be very pretty.
Marsha took this stunning photo and you must click on it to appreciate it in larger form. She got just the right angle where the ice is lit up in vivid rainbows by the sun. It looks like the trees are covered with Christmas lights. This was taken in Sandwich, near where we got married.
I was out in my yard too, shooting some snappies. Ice is so pretty in the sun. The crystals are beautiful.
About all I got on my trees were shining branches.
Ice droplets on lilac. In just a few months, that will be covered in beautiful and intoxicating purple flowers.
That same night, we had a beautiful, freezing cold sunset. But too cold for me to go down the beach to shoot it so I stayed in the yard and shot the clouds.
And the crows.
