It's interesting how the frozen parts are rising, if that makes sense. It makes me wonder if you rotated it, but.. yeah, it'd be pretty awesome if they did rise as opposed to the opposite.

The colours are brilliant. Very crisp and sharp so that we almost feel what it's like to be 'burnt' by the cold. I suppose that is quite the oxymoron/juxtaposition. :nod:

Really nicely framed and shot here! :D

Last winter, when we had that ice-storm, I couldn't help but think how awesome it all looked...it was pretty dream like :nod: This shot doesn't really capture it :no:

Dude...it'd be so creepy if, once frozen, ice rose upwards off of surfaces. You'd have to wear special underpants to keep from being slowly impaled :ohnoes:

Thanks much :hug:

I really like that you flipped it upside down, and now the ice seems to be defying gravity. :)

Gorgeous ice picture.

As I was editing it, I was trying to find a way of making it look interesting - so I resorted to the old rotate-the-image trick :la:

Thank you kindly :)

This reminds me of an occurrence back in February or March on my school's campus. Every single tree was frozen or covered in frost, and I had to snap a few mobile pictures before it all melted away before I got out of class. Even when others don't like the way ice freezes on a tree, I do. You picked the perfect timing for the picture.

Yeah, I think I took this photo then. The trees really stood out on my drive back from work, really kind of enchanting :nod:

Thanks again :)

No problem! It is enchanting to see the freeze on trees, especially when the sky is a dull grey and everything else is coated in white, it just makes the perfect winter scene.

I absolutely love your photographs for their colors. :) I mean it.

This work's beauty lies in its starkness with the environment, the clarity of the branches (I especially love how the nodules from the branches the impression of icicles... or are they icycles ^^; ... and at the same time, the brightness and contrast were balanced with such ambience, its amaazing... truly.

Worth a feature on :iconevery-photo: :) Well done.

And trust me - I do absolutely love melancholic photographs on this one... if you'd permit me, I'd like to write a poem on this photograph one of these days. Eagerly waiting for your reply :eager:

Thanks much for the high praise :) The ice was a beautiful thing after the storm had passed, and power was restored...everything had this clear coating on it - like a glazed doughnut but not as tasty :drool: But yeah, it was interesting seeing the darkness of the bark against the brightness of the snow and ice, had to try and capture that.

And a poem, I'd be honored :nod:

I'm aware that the chill is still back East,  say, out West the temps are
Spring like, Kamal~   with some sun and rain.  :sun: 
I hope that the winter spell will soon be over;  I wonder about the
flooding of the rivers....I used to live in Illinois by the Mississippi which
usually is covered with ice enough to walk across.  It will be interesting to
see how the thaw will turn out back East.  Take care, do watch out for the
plumbing in your house.

Yeah, its half way to freezing, so no flooding - luckily we use too much water for ice to form in the pipes :D

I hope so too, and I hope you continue to enjoy your early Spring :)
