One of the acts of winter that makes the interval between autumn and

spring not so long. The ice storm had encased both the branches and the

autumn leaf and also created some minor icicles. Thanks for viewing.

Wow, It amazes me how you captured this transition in seasons. The picture truly shows the metamorphosis. Nicely done!

Thanks.  I had to wait a little. The wind was really blowing the branches around. I had never before seen this form of arrested water/ice drops, almost like the Linden tree had hands and fingers. It is easy to get the exposure right with digital cameras.

I found you via a wonderful comment you left on one of Stephen Penland's images.  So I came over to look around.  This is absolutely a work of art!  Although I can't figure out why the light brown areas are that color, it provides a beautiful contrast to the brown branches revealed through the ice and the ice itself.  Great depth of field and beautifully placed in the frame.  I really love this.  I don't know where you live, but I live in Indiana and recently enjoyed for the first time getting out and trying my hand at some winter ice shots.  I didn't get anything nearly this good though.

Hi Christal,


I live on an island in the downstream St. Lawrence river, east of Quebec City. Ice storms are part of the winter life in Canada, when sub-zero (that is -32F) and higher temperatures oscillate during snow and rain storms, sometimes in January, but often in early March as spring attempts to make its slow entrance. Our Linden tree still sported some of its autumn leaves (the somewhat obscured beige elements), which like the branches themselves were encapsulated by the ice, which then began to melt and refreeze, giving the impression of a hand of sorts. I wish I had spent the day or two after this in photographing the trees and landscapes that in the ensuing sun simply sparkled like jewels.


I had the oportunity to visit your portfolio and particularly loved the semi-abstract image "Ice on the Bias". Thank you for your kind comments here.
