The Wonder of Winter

It is unfortunate that I am in one of the least photographic periods of my life because this morning was marvelous. Last night we had a very long period of freezing rain in South Louisiana. When the sun came up this morning it was a new world.  Millions of twigs. branches and limbs of thousands of trees at Big wood were covered with delicate but substantial casings of clear ice. It truly was a magical and miraculous scene as the sun rose and scattered light through all these lenses. Later there were so many sources of melt that it sounded and looked like a storm  or shower but if one walked where there were no trees overhead then no water was falling. It is all melted now and I have no camera I can find these days except one not suited for outdoor photography. But it was a splendid moment.
