A few weeks ago we awoke to a beautiful display of winter. In the middle of the night, Jack Frost had summoned the best and painted the trees in dazzling white and silver. Steel gray hovered low on the horizon while brilliant cobalt exploded high in the sky. It was a unique and stunning phenomenon unlike anything I'd ever seen before. Those images, though not completely captured here, are firmly imprinted within me and kept among the other beautiful moments in my life.

Oh my goodness - that's ice on the trees? I've never eeen anything like that. Here in NE - everything would be covered. Very interesting...

Beautiful pictures, Laurel! I love it when fog freezes on the trees.

It reminds me a bit of Dr. Zhivago

How pretty! We don't get much ice or snow in Georgia. One day I'm going to winter up north to fully appreciate a white winter!

This reminds me of that Ice Storm we had a few years ago. It was a huge national disaster, but it was so beautiful. Everything was coated in ice. It's strange that despite the temporary hardship, all I really remember is the beauty of a world that had been turned to crystal.
