When we awoke this morning, just a couple of days before Christmas, our entire city was sheathed in ice after a large storm moved through the area. As many as 250 000 people lost electrical power, something that is essential in this part of the world during the winter. The other side of such storms is that they leave behind amazingly beautiful scenes, like the rain that freezes as it runs down the branches of trees and bushes, leaves and buds.

It looks like you had an ice storm, we had torrential rains. You could convince me that this is a crystal ornament.

The quantity of ice on this plant is really amazing and makes strange forms. I like the low depth of field that focuses only on a few details. This winter storm looks terrific, it's so cold !
