Sunshine on Ice

I kind of like the title... it sounds like you can preserve the sunshine like fish or fresh cream. That said, the pictures are disappointing. The reality glowed and sparkled and shimmered.

You'll have to settle for what the camera managed to capture.

East of us, the ice hasn't ever melted off the trees since the weekend (or the roads- loving the new tires!)

You can almost see the sparkles on this one. I wonder if a video would have caught the sparkling.

This is my favorite picture, even though it wasn't the best real life scene.

It is frustrating how the camera limits so severely the images that spread before us. Sometimes post processing helps.

I always love how ice looks on things. Of course driving around in it is a whole different story.

Oh, I can only imagine the beauty. The photos are lovely, but I know it was truly spectacular in real life, eh?

Be careful driving on all that ice, Sharkey!

Shelly- Thanks! You convince me that a bit of the magic remained

Chuck- yes, but the sparkles just disappeared, The camera seems to catch them on water, but not ice

Ann- the new tires really made a difference

Lin- Thanks, I am much happier with good, solid tires. The ice base probably won't go off the back roads all winter.
