Fire and Ice

Over the last few days, we had a severe ice storm. Although such a storm brings destruction and power failures, it also brings unexpected beauty.

Here are a few moments of splendour captured looking through the windows at the back of my home.

Fire and ice

In the last photo, doesn’t it look like the branches are on fire? Or diamonds sparkling against the blue sky?  These branches are at the top of a 40′ tree, dancing in the fiery light of the sun. Pure magic!

Winter’s Beauty

Yep, we’re back in the deep freeze.

Nope, I don’t like the frigid temperatures any more than you do.

But…I love looking out my window at freshly fallen snow.

Isn’t it beautiful?
