The story will be more interesting than the photo. Just happened to have an ice storm in Iowa this weekend. We ended up with about 1"- 1.5" of ice plus snow on top of that. About 130,000 homes in the area were without power from a couple of hours up to several weeks for the rural area's. Miles and miles of power lines and poles down. The ice, along with strong winds, also took down some pretty massive trees to add to the problems. You just gotta love winter!!!!! This shot won't do well, but the conditions were rather trecherous to get a good shot with the freezing rain and very slick conditions. Didn't want to sacrifice my equiptment and self for a poor showing.

I like the enclosed feel to this photograph. Perhaps, a little less of the background could be shown for a little more focus.

Good find, well composed with the two parallel horizontal twigs. I particular like the background bokeh - shows off the frozen berries to perfection.

I like it. The ice on the branches on the background is a bit too bright but otherwise is great! 8
