040/2011 icing on the trees

040/2011 icing on the trees, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

Rapidly dipping temperatures, after yesterday’s snow storm, created these formations on the trees – like thick icing. Clear blue skies added to the crisp effect. At sunset the scenery was particularly attractive.

Pretty, but terribly cold! My poor fingers almost froze while taking these pictures. Winter is still showing its might, and holding us in its icy grip.

    I can relate to frozen finger photographing. I love the blue sky – it makes the photo pop

    Winter photography certainly has its challenges! But the beautiful colours are worth it!
