To me, the natural world offers myriad opportunities for interesting photo captures. In this case, just after an ice storm, I went out to find icicles everywhere! While potentially devastating, and there was considerable damage by way of downed limbs, trees and wires in the wake of this storm, it also provided some very cool pictures!
These icicles formed on the lower edges of the board fences – a perfect combination for today’s topic!

I had neither the time nor the inclination to stop to take photos today. When I left school – I am a high school teacher – my car was covered with ice and my sole intention was to get home as quickly as possible. The temperature hovered around 30º F and just after I arrived home safely, all the rain turned over to freezing rain. I took a quick minute to run out to the driveway which, being 600′ long is the closest I could get to “street”. It has thawed and re-frozen for nearly a week now and is quite a mess. Normally I like winter, but I am SO ready for spring!
