Continued cold weather combined with brilliant sunshine created a crystal light show.
My challenge was to see if it was possible to capture the beauty with a camera.
Judging by the shots I tried while pulled off County M east of Verona, I'd say it was a marginally successful attempt.
The pictures can't capture the visual beauty created by light and a little frozen water.
Thankfully, this ice was a light coat which kept broken branches and related damage to a minimum.
As I write this, a thunderstorm is passing through town with rolling peals of thunder and bright flashes of lightning.
Yesterday it snowed, covering exposed grass and those formerly ice-covered branches in white.
It seems like our wild canvas is ever-changing with a wide variety of color, temps, and precipitation.
I can't imagine the winter weather waiting in the wings.
