[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well today we are having a storm, started this morning when I got up with freezing rain, we got 1/2 inch of it everywhere before it switched to snow, I took this photo before the snow started, more than a foot has fallen and now the wind is blowing a gale ( 45knots)
Glad that I bought in lots of wood to stay warm yesterday!!

Hello Donna
I missed this one yesterday...

Happy to see you still have power!
I love the look of your icicle's! nice colors against the natural wood!



It was a crazy day here... woke to 5 inches of snow then a cold hard rain all day... Today we missed the alarm due to a power outage!

Hi Donna,
Great picture. I really like pictures of ice. Nice frame. TFS

I did Icicle shot me too last week... It would be good to work on at least one for TL...
I enjoy your close capture and you were on a zone of shadow who don't look easy! You had well made it! Excellent fresh effect :)

Great colors and textures in this one Donna ! Great composition and very good technique. Thanks ! Happy New Year 2008 !


Hi Donna,
happy new year. Interesting subject and composition here. Perhaps having a border (line) around it will have really helped 'push' it out some more - especially looking at the snow part at the top.
Nice effort all the same. Well done. Best regards, Daniel

Hi Donna
perfect choice of colours
and a good work
