Crabapple in Ice

Crabapples in Ice

I am surprised and pleased by your interest in the ice storm images. Another here, and the image underneath (V2) is a view of our road taken during the storm-- the mess being where a large branch was moved off the road. The roads were heavily salted for safety, hence, they are NOT frozen.

Many thanks to ROB (Rock) for the gift of his User Award on Tamakeyama in Ice!

Excellent dof, lovely texture in the ice, super colour to the crabapple encased in ice, and simply but beautifully presented Jenn

Such a vivid red, emphasised perhaps by its immediate surroundings and backdrop. An outstanding series, Jennnn.

Hi Jennn
When my wife Svetlana looked at the latest two photos she said: I want to take pictures like that"
I asked her just to forget about this idea and to enjoy your photos instead.Smile
