Wouldn't it be Ice






We had some freezing rain here a couple days ago, so my buddy, Jonathan and I went out and found this field to shoot just as the sun was going down. It was an amazing site - so much light bouncing everywhere - it's like everything was coated in glass. I took tons of shots, so I may post some more next time.

superbes photos, le reflet du soleil donne une impression d'or, aussi beaucoup de fragilité et de douceur


superb photographs, the reflection of the sun gives an impression of gold, also much of brittleness and softness

Amazing pics Joel! Nature can be so beautiful, thanks for capturing this moment :) First snow on the sidewalks of Manhattan today, but it's not as nice...

Beautiful ice collection! The low level sun imparted stunning colors and contrast. Lovely! It sure looks cold; I guess that’s why the geese in the third photo are headed south.

Very beautiful, Joel. We had icy rain last week also and it was VERY big news around South Texas. Lots of accidents as people are just not used to the driving conditions. My friends and I also shots tons of ice pictures and enjoyed it. And froze our fingers a bit.

Hope you, your wife and the baby are all well and keeping warm!

Hey Joel! I don't like the winter and especially not the ice because I always seem to be the one slipping on it, but I have to admit, these photos are beautiful. You have such a talent with the camera. Well I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I think your photos are great! I hope Isaac is doing well, your mom tells me he's quite the sleeper! You and Andrea are very lucky! Say hi to Andrea for me!

These are great shots, Joel! The top pic is my absolute favorite. It's like a freaky abstract sculpture... It's perfect.

Sun does like gold in the melting ice
Warm and cold at the same time...
