Icy Trees and Blue Skies



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

We had a very cold and snowy Christmas weekend here in the Glade. This picture of ice-coated trees in our yard was taken last year, but I needed the reminder that even wintry weather can be beautiful.

I think that iced trees are remarkable looking. Hard to believe that the ice can be so heavy when it looks so lacy.

I had to click on this one, George. It should be called "Icy Blue". The ice with that brilliant blue behind it just really makes it all pop, georgous!

I like those crisp, cold, but clear and blue-sky days. The ice coating always makes it sort of ethereal.

Wintery weather is gorgeous - - - just cold and dangerous at times! However, I prefer the cold to the hot, hot summers.

A pretty lacy tree. The blue of the sky really sets if off. Great photo.

It is indeed beautiful.... although the two feet of snow in my driveway when we returned from snowless Greeley Colordo late last night, maybe not so much. :)

It does give you a greater appreciation for the weather doesn't it. Its been really warm here in Oklahoma that I have to keep reminding myself its actually winter. You'll hear no complaints on the weather from me. =)

When I was young and gowing up in Borneo, I always wonder if the trees will die from the cold.

Then I went to Canada, and saw how resilient the trees were.

Re: Tower in Marina, You and Windsmoke confirm to me that men and women don't think think alike.

You guys were so technical.

When I saw the wind sock, I I only thought it was to tell the sailors how strong thewind was.

Happy New Year.
