The Ice Hangs On!



Schenectady and Glenville are still overwhelmingly iced over. I have never seen anything like it! I went to Photo Images, now open on Saturdays, and was blown away by the amount of ice that lingers on every tree, fence, wire, etc. Traffic lights are still out and many have no power. I felt rather guilty admiring the beauty of it all when so many homes and businesses are dealing with the damage of fallen trees and downed power lines. I suspect that the people in these areas are also awestruck by the beauty, despite all the hassles the ice has caused. I'm loving the outdoor shots- continually avoiding the inside, still-life photos that this 365 day challenge will force me to take.

I'm totally in love with the first one. It's the picture I was trying to capture today, but never got a chance. You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out why. Such a beautiful job, Steve!

I absolutely LOVE your first image!!!!! On the way to the nursing home yesterday, I, too, was awestruck by the beauty of the ice covering the trees...the sky was blue, the sun was shining and everything simply glittered! We did not have any of that at my house. I wanted to stop so badly and try to capture that beauty. I KNEW you would do it...and couldn't wait to check your blog. Great, great job (and I am SOOOO envious)!!!!
