Thanks for the votes and a nice 4th place. It takes a little hurt off of the "nastier" side of this ice storm--we had no power from Thursday night at 1:00 am to Tuesday afternoon. We had to go live in a friends basement after one day, because our house was really cold (and dark).

This was taken at sunset in a local park. The photo is inverted both vertically and horizontally, just cause I liked it better that way. The nearer bokeh is from the sunset light shining through another row of icicles a few feet away; the bigger ones from the light coming through trees (and very likely ice) further away.

Thanks again!

I think that you should have had a ribbon for this one. Top shot.

Great color and good use of the polemic "circles of light". The black thing on the right top is kind of distracting and maybe more focus on the ice would be better! I like it!

Would like to have seen all the foreground a little sharper but the background effect and the angle looks great! Well done.

That's a really interesting angle and a lot of bokeh going on.

Seasonal, but not Christmassy. Should do well.
