This morning, everything was candy-coated with a layer of ice. I decided to take some pictures after I saw how pretty the holly bushes outside our front door were looking...
And then, I discovered that the ice on the holly leaves had actually made perfect little crystal-like molds of each leaf. I tried photographing them in my hand, but it was not doing them justice.
I decided to gather several of them and brought them inside to photograph as quickly as I could! I love how glassy and delicate they look.
After the first few pictures, I put them in the freezer so that I could extend my photographing time. When I took them out again, they were all frosty and beautiful in a new way. I tried to capture this and thought they looked quite smashing in black and white.
According to the Lizzard, the ice storm has made its way to New York today. Be safe, everyone!
Have a Happy Valentine's Day!
