Thawing Out

Posted by
B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 5 February 2011 in Plant & Nature.

After several days of bitter cold weather with wind, freezing rain, then sleet and snow, we are starting to thaw out. I know our winter storm was nothing like what is going on in other parts of the world, but it was pretty unusual for us.

BRAVO. I LOVE this shot. The contrast and the glistening ice is so dramatic and sharp.
Beautifully encased little berries. Hope this ice doesn't ruin their future. ;-)
