Leaf under Ice

I should be an expert at ice photography after this winter, right? I’m tired of it, but it was either an ice photo or a cat photo today. That’s all there is around here.

  1. I really like this one of leaves surfacing – beautiful! I have a stack of ice photos left too – I’m not sure whether to post one, or save it for another time. The birds sang this morning but now it is snowing again!

  2. Thank you, I appreciate the compliment.
    Ugh–you have more snow? The sun came out here, finally, and melted a good bit of the ice. I’m ready for a warm-up!
