Surrounded by snow and ice

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)

  1. 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.

    • 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.
