Last time we were at Reelfoot Lake, ice formations made by windblown spray decorated the cypress knees and bases of the trees. For the most part, our winter has been mild, with temperatures going from freezing at night to above freezing in the daytime, so though the ice wasn’t as thick as it has been in the past, it was still an impressive and beautiful sight.

Beautiful iced trees.
Thanks, Tim! I look forward to seeing them each year.

Yes, it is! Thanks, Donna!
Beautiful ice formations – some are simply amazing!
Thanks, Eliza! Melting and refreezing has created some unique sculptures. I thought it was crazy how some of them could hold on to such tiny branches. 🙂
This ice on the trees is stunning and I think when I first started following your blog it was in Winter and you had equally as beautiful pics at that time. Even a lowly icicle can be beautiful, especially if you can see a prism in it.
Thanks, Linda! I am always amazed by the beauty in the ice.
😮 magnificent photos
Thanks so much! 🙂
