What amazing 'bubbles' of ice weighing down these Fir tree branches! I bet the ground is very icy and slippery too! I like the light and the dark background. Very well done!
TFS and all the best wishes for 2009! Ulla

Hi Evelynn and Happy New Year.
Your capture of freezing rain is well shown. The ice on the needles look like a semi precious stone called Peridot.
I'm not sure what is worse....freezing rain or -40 degree weather.
Cheers Evelynn, here's to a very happy and healthy 2009. Janice

Interesting image Evelynn,
You have to wonder why the ice formed in such tiny ball like clusters. Very sharp detail and texture in this wonderful composition.
The dark BG. really accents the ice encrusted branch. I Like the tiny red specks, they add color.
"Happy New Year to you too!!

Doug fir smells real nice...but unfortunately that happens when it is cut and in a living room of a cabin in the mountains...but the freeze does well to it..It kills the beetles and such which destroy it so there is good in this image..maybe not for a driver but for a tree...well imaged!

First I must straighten something out MEN RULE well at least when the women let us. Secondly Happy New Year and thank you for all your great contributions on TN. Charming image with a great dark background to isolate the fir boughs.

Nice ice pattern you have shown in your photo. I can feel the cold of the shiny ice! It looks great in the light of the flash against the darck background.
Thank you for sharing,

living on a country where the winters are very cold
and having saw things like your image i can imagine
how heavy is this for the tree branches,
with the use of Flash you obtained a exceelent image
with the all black background and excellent luminosity
and details of the foreground with the vegetation
and the heavy freezing water, excellent nature Morte photo, TFS
Happy and Healthy Year for you and your husbund

I will only say that you are staying in a beautiful part of the world where you are blessed with natural crytals of supercooled ice. Very well composed & framed image. TFS & wish you too a very happy New Year 2009.

Hello Evelynn !
All your winter pictures look fantastic - cold but very beautiful ! :-) I specially like this one, because we can see the beautiful patterns the ice is making on the Fir tree, must be heavy, poor tree. I also like how branch and ice stand out against the black BG, very nice contrast. Very well done !
