Ice Storm – 2/365

The resilience of trees always amazes me. You see their branches break under a burden of ice at times of course, but so often they just bow gracefully and wait for the thaw. The destruction caused by the ice storms we have been having is easy to forget when the sun breaks through the cloud, making the icy branches glitter as if they were dripping with diamonds. It was a windy -22 C (-8 F) yesterday when I got out of the car to take photographs including this one and although I had gloves on, I had no hat and was only wearing leggings on my legs. Before I got back into the car my legs were frozen almost numb and I was afraid I was going to get frostbite on my ears.

  1. For sure, +Rosie Nixon – just didn't want to miss it and had to go into the field to get the right angle… so couldn't get it from the warmth of the car. But I was glad to get back onto my heated seat when I was finished! Thanks for the comment.

  2. Thanks a lot +Andrew Hajek 

    Thank you +Diana Boyd – it was very lovely.

    Thanks very much +Mark Swindells 

    +Shelly Gunderson – thank you!

    +Jasbir S. Randhawa – thank you my friend. 😀 but you see there is some advantage in lower temperatures when we have sights like this one (rarely, I admit, as the ice only is like this when it has fallen as freezing rain and then the temperatures fall far and fast).

    +pio dal cin – thank you very much, Pio.

    +Lauri Novak – so lovely that I didn't feel the cold… at first! Thanks.

    And thank you +Alan Mason – that really made me feel… colder 😀

    +Thomas Gillingham – I was so glad I had my camera with me. Lengths indeed! (and depths of temperatures, as I found).

    +張佳琪 – 非常感谢!
