What a beauty this is, the golden grasses cover with ice. Simple yet so elegant is the composition. Can you imagine the extra weight on branches, powerlines and such. Great work my friend.

Nicely done Evelynn,
When I first viewed your thumbnail photo I thought it was some kind of thistle. Your freezing rain series were wonderful!!
With this much white the exposure is tricky, but you nailed it with this shot!!
Isn't it neat how ice has transformed an otherwise common clump of dried grass into beautiful artwork!!

What a beautiful display this is Evelynn. I'd love it at home on my coffee table!!!
I love the colours and seeing how the layers i=of ice are covering the grasses.

Üzeri buzla kaplanmış bu bitkinin harika bir karesini sunmuşsunuz. Yakaladığınız bu güzel görüntüyü kusursuz kaydetmeyi başarmışsınız. Değişik ve seyri çok hoş bir kare olmuş. Emeğinize sağlık.
An amazing shot - something we rarely - or ever see in the UK.Good pov and detail.
Greetings from Chile.

This is again very beautiful and amazing!
As James said, too, such a thing is extremely rare for Europe so thanks for your extended presentation of this phenomenon.
You managed to show us another beautiful geometric side of nature here in such an exceptional condition. Very beautifully composed and presented.
I also like the very exact exposure here and the terrific details all over. I'm not too sure on the frame...but that's a matter of personal taste :)
Cheers, TFS and Happy New Year!

you are right when you write : « simple clump of
dried grass can be transformed to a thing of beauty »,
a beautiful « nature morte » shot with the beautiful
golden colours surrounded by the freezing rain, TFS

This is a fountain of beauty.
The clump looks like a crystal fireworks burst.
Nicely composed in the frame.
The details are sharp.

Very strange Newton's law isn't effective here...
You should expect that through the weight everything goes down in terms of gravity:-)
Even if I consume an ice cream....no that's no good example.
Anyway a happy 2009 and tons of images..

I just have made a tour through your gallery and I realize that I have missed a lot of beautiful pictures during my holidays. I stopped over at this picture because it's a kind I like very much. It's so delicate, and the colours are superb. The title suits the subject very well.
It's magical... and will be one of my favourites!

Frosty grass is something we often see here but icy grass occurs rarely and this is a superb capture! A lovely simple composition with great focus and in beautiful colours.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

That really is a very thick layer of ice. I've only experienced it once while living in Atlanta and know what a nuisance it can be but also how wonderfully it can transfer a scenery.
I like your clean composition and just love that touch of golden light.
