After a quick succession of snow, freezing rain, and plummeting temperatures the sun came out and today everything was sparkling.

Mosaic: Iced Seed Heads

Mosaic8This morning we had freezing rain and I headed out to photograph the same seed heads in my garden that I’ve been documenting over the fall. As the day wore on and the temperature crept over the freezing mark the ice started to change, and then things really started to look interesting. The transitions in nature are just so fascinating.
