After a wintry cold spell, we once again visited Reelfoot Lake this past weekend and were amazed by the beautiful ice and snow formations surrounding the cypress trees.
“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.'” ~Lewis Carroll (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland)

What an amazing sight for my southern friends. Your photography is beautiful❤️
Thanks so much for your kind words! Looks like you’re seeing plenty of the white stuff too. 🙂
We only had about 5 inches on the north side of town, but my son lives on the south side and he had 16 inches.
My daughter lives near St. Paul and I think they got about a foot.
It was kind of weird because there were parts that got nothing and others got hammered❄️❄️❄️
Just beautiful – icey and dicey is what I call it, and we’ve had more than our fair share of it here in Michigan this year due to this erratic weather we are having. Usually we have all the ice in March when it drips along tree branches and wreaks havoc with the power line, or is glare ice on the road or sidewalk. We’ve had that ice the last few weeks. Your photos are very beautiful.
Though ice and snow can be beautiful, I can see that it would be very frustrating to have it around for long periods of time. Some things are best when experienced in small amounts. Thanks, Linda!
That’s for sure Rebecca. You’re welcome – they are beautiful photos.
Wow, beautiful ice photos. It is not what I expect to see in TN. Is this weather unusual? I know the South is getting a lot of storms this winter.
I would say this was unusual. The temperatures were bitterly cold, like a lot of the country had, and everything turned to ice. Luckily, it doesn’t last long around here. The day I took these photos, the temperature got up in the 50’s and everything pretty much melted within a couple of days.
Never would have thought to see ice on cypress trees! Wonderful!
It does happen occasionally, and the formations can be quite beautiful!
These photos are absolutely spectacular! Wow! So beautiful. Good for you for capturing a rare event with your camera!
Nature does look magical when it turns to ice. 🙂
