Ice Portraits

It’s now February and there will be six more weeks of winter. Instead of crying the blues about being cold and uncomfortable, I would rather embrace the beauty of the frigid air and icy conditions. As I looked up at the trees while walking my dog Zoey this morning, I noticed all of the patterns created by the tree branches and plants imprisoned in ice. With toes frozen and hands red as lava from the cold, I quickly tried to capture their illuminated stillness and lyrical movement.
