Bejeweled Trees

(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.  Clicking a second time will make it full-sized.)

We had freezing rain Monday night, and on Tuesday morning the trees in our yard had a thin coating of ice.  It was cloudy and misty, and yet the trees looked like they were covered with jewels.

Superb capture.

We did not get the ice, just a light snow. My sister that lives near Memphis, was iced in. It makes for a lovely shot tho.

Freezing rain can be a bad deal but the photos that follow are always great.

We were supposed to get that last night but our temps stayed at just over freezing.
I really like when the sun comes up after a freezing rain and the trees just glisten. Those little 'jewels' sure are pretty!
Hope it's warming up for you.

Oh I do not like freezing rain although it does make of a good photo op. We have sparking trees too only it is just frost and the sun is just coming up and making them shimmer.
I do love the droplets in your picture. MB

Ice can do a lot of damage but it sure makes for some beautiful pictures.

It's neat how they catch the light. I like the idea of making it monochrome, too.
