Personal Photography – Winter Ice Storm

These three photos were taken at my parents’ house.  They live in the country and there are always birds in the trees outside the back of their house.

These are from the first day of the ice storm.  It was while I was out on a walk taking these photos that we lost power.  Most houses in the area already had lost power early that morning but we didn’t lose ours until late afternoon.  As frustrating as a five day power outage was, I was so glad I was able to take pictures of the ice.  I am thrilled with the way the photos turned out.

And these are from the morning of Christmas Eve before we went to my husband’s office to shower.  I was exhausted and frustrated and grumpy, but it was still so, so beautiful that I had to stop and take some photos.
