Off Topic: January 07 Ice Storm - Michigan



Like much of the midwest, we were blanketed with a mix of freezing rain, snow and sleet. Fortunatetly, my immediate area seems to have been spared power outages. However, judging by what I see on the news with tens of thousands out of power, we got hit a little lighter than they did in other local communities.

I decided to go out tonite and play with my camera and play around mostly with close-ups.

Frost and chill, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.
Ice and snow, bless the Lord; praise and exalt him above all forever.

(Dn 3:69-70)

These were taken without flash. There were some overhead streetlights just lighting up the ice coatings.




These were taken with flash....

Diane,

I had to laugh when I saw these pictures. My girls and I were just admiring our trees and lamenting that we did not have our cameras to capture this simple beauty that God gave us. Frequently I find that we are of the same mind!

God bless you!
Inourlady!

I regret not capturing my fully, flowering pansies while they were encased with ice. One of these days, I will capture that!
