Ohhh, I love that it has both this warm, welcoming tone with the golden light, but all a little bit of an eerie vibe with the scraggly branches reaching out. Very cool capture.
Thanks, Rorybore. You see what I saw as I made the capture. I get the feeling that it is the light of Elendil in Shelob’s lair. Will Sting protect?
Oh excellent reference to Lord of the Rings! :)
Ice on branches looks like giant spider webs in the dark. As a Tolkien fan, the reference seems only natural to me. Glad you caught it.
Ice can be so beautiful, especially as you have it in your picture; but my driveway was heavily coated with ice and we felt stranded here. Since then 2 people have told me that they can salt my driveway if needed.
We stayed in on Tuesday, and the ice was [mostly] gone by Wednesday. I don’t like freezing rain. It causes a lot of damage.
Great shot, amazing effects of light through the branches. Come visit mine. tnx
Thanks, Jho. I did visit yours and would love to hear that band play.
Very striking image. I’m assuming an electric light is shining behind the branches, but it brings to mind a natural gas well flaring.
Your assumption is 100% correct. The sodium vapor lamp does have yellow-orange light to it. That is somewhat mitigated by the fact that I used flash to change the color temp.
Oh my gosh! is it that cold by you?? We have warm temps, but rainy and dreary. Maybe sun tomorrow??? I hope your ice melts.
The temperature was rising, and the ice was gone by morning. Today was misty, a bit of early fog and very dreary. Living west of the lake lead gray skies dominate our winter weather. The positive side of that is that those conditions also moderate our weather.
I like the Bruce Willis line from Die Hard 2, “Welcome to the party, pal!” Sylvia and I watched that one last night.
Very pretty! Looks cold though!
It was cold, Jill. Around freezing, but it warmed up and by morning the ice was gone.
Thanks, Patrick. It was in the middle of the night.
Nice shot I like the angle too :-)
Have a tanfastic week :-)
Thanks, Steve. I don’t normally care for freezing rain, but it did lead to this interesting image.
Good week to U 2.
Chuck, thanks for dropping by and joining my WW linky party. I betcha won’t find any apples on that tree. lol Now, y’all have some winters in Michigan, don’t ya? I was in middle of the state in 2000 early February. DH had a job interview. I’ll never forget how strong the winds were but everyone was saying it was kinda mild and I thought I’d hate to see it when it’s really windy. :) Be well and have a good new year. I hope you’ll decide to join me each week in my photo shares. Have a good evening!
No apples there this time of year, Cathy. Our house is on a hill and so we do catch some wind. Winters here are moderated by Lake Michigan. We don’t have the cold of Minnesota or Wisconsin. We are far enough east to not have lake effect snow. Our winters can be rough but our summers can’t be beat.
