The recent snow and warm sun has created beautiful icicles. I spent a half an hour Friday morning shooting the ones around our house. This winter has been such a long one, across much of North America. As I write this the maritimes are being hammered with yet another winter storm. While the storms can and have been destructive they can also create incredible beauty. I have spent a lot of time this winter photographing snow drifts and storms. The icicles are no different, beauty but destructive. After I had photographed them I knocked most of them off since I was scared of their weight pulling the eaves troughs down.
One of these days I do need to get those lights down.
