01.02.2020 A little New Year’s Glitter

I guess I gave the impression with yesterday’s post that I was sharing the New Year’s Day sunrise.  If I had waited until later in the day I could have but I usually post while it  remains dark but in the wee hours still. There was a nice sunrise to welcome the year, but while waiting for that to happen I made a few images with the twilight sky and some of the beautiful coating of ice that every tree was wearing.

While this isn’t the same phenomenon as the frosted trees the other day, it is a similar  image.  The more spectacular light happened a few minutes later.  To be continued….  🙂

  1. What fun to have a tree coated in ice. Did you also get close for abstract ice patterns?

    • Usually the frosting is from freshly fallen snow, but we had a freezing rain event and the ice maintained for a few days. I was very happy to find it as it was just local in one area and not at all here in my town.

    This is pure delight. The delicacy of the color seems a fitting complement to the delicacy of the ice coating the branches. Another lucky detail is the presence of just enough snow to cover the stones, but allow their form to be visible. I really like this one.

    • Thanks, Linda. For something to fill the time while waiting for the sun to crest the horizon this turned out to be my favorite of the morning. I did also like the mixture of snow and rock as a nice additional feature. I was told by a friend on Facebook who lives on this road in New Salem and knows the orchard owner that this is a favorite tree on the property and she has named the tree. Sue didn’t tell me the name though.
