Taken March 16th.

This was the nicest photo I took during this time period. I liked this so much I entered it in the free study and did pretty well with it. We had an ice storm (we call it freezing rain or silver thaw) and everything was coated. I went out while it was still raining and took some macro shots.

This is really beautiful. I agree the background sets it off nicely.

a lovely simple composition, a wonderful choice of editing to give the image a soft dreamy like feel

The background is just enough to really set this off nicely, and the flower itself is almost jewel-like in it's encasement. Really lovely!!

Gosh, I can see why this silvery beauty is a personal favorite - have you ever had it printed on metallic paper? Or better yet on aluminium? It would be stunning.

From the thumbnail, it looks like a beautiful ring. It surely is a real gem with the glistening light off the slightly melted coating of ice! Nice angle and background to give it added punch with composition.

I'm way behind on commenting but I had to jump ahead to this one. It is truly stunning! I love freezing rain for the beauty it brings, and this is the best example of it that I have seen. Added to favorites.

I have to keep this in mind if it rains in the near future or next Spring. Really cool photo.

"Silver Thaw" has a very pretty and delicate tinge to it, just as this photo does. Couldn't have been comfortable shooting conditions, so it's nice to get rewarded for it.

Incredibly beautiful.

Oooh! Very nice!!! I have a feeling this is one of those shots that would really benefit from more pixels, as well.

Delightful image from what must have been a long duration freezing rain event. The encapsulated plant is a joy to view. This is a very fine nature shot.
