    I needed to look up ‘Bokeh’…I’m glad at long last to know a word for that. Lovely photos…must have been a frosty party day for you & your camera!

  5. Sharon says:

    Ooh, the bouncy light is lovely. Happy Winter, Eliza! These are gorgeous :).

    This is great, thanks for sharing!

    The photo of the icicle on the leaf is amazing! I have a warm fuzzy blanket on me right now for warmth. Brrrr!

  8. Kris P says:

    Ice may have a nasty reputation but it’s sure a great decorator!

  9. derrycats says:

    Gorgeous shots. How do you work with a camera outside in these temps?? So cold here and dropping.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you. It was around 20F when I took these. I can’t work too long when it is below that, esp. with the single and neg. digits we’re getting the next few days. Stay warm!

    Lovely! Did you get freezing rain, then? We got two big snow storms, and now its very cold and windy.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Joanna. It rained on Sat. then over Xmas, it snowed 4″ so everything is layered. Yes, now the wind is up and very cold… I expect it is extremely cold at your place. STAY WARM!

    Take it easy out there! These photos are terrific 👀

  12. Walking My Path: Mindful Wanderings in Nature says:

    Ice storms always remind me of fairies, though a bit hard on the trees. You captured them beautifully!

  13. Anne says:

    While I do not envy you the cold, these images you have captured look magic!

  14. Stunning photos, Eliza – ice turns the world into a magical place and a good reason to stay close to home 😊

  15. Brrrrr …… It’s mighty cold here too! When I got up this morn, it was -6 degrees. I’ll stay in, thank you!! 🙂

  16. Kathy Sturr says:

    Brrrr Eliza! It has been a cold winter. I checked Clayton temperature this morning -16° and -22° at the lake! Stay cozy and warm. These photos shine

  17. NorCal Zen says:

    Those are some magical winter photos! It looks cold and beautiful!

  18. Beautiful. It looks so sparkly and pretty. We are -3 degs tonight, but there is a lot of nasty black ice about already.

  19. So pretty – especially as I enjoy the pictures from the warm indoors.

    That picture with the leaf is a little jewel. Stay warm by the stove. It’s a good time to read books you haven’t been able to get to!

  21. Murtagh's Meadow says:

    Wow, everything encased in their own ice blanket. We woke to sharp frost this morning too.

  22. Rebecca says:

    Many years ago I spent a winter in Michigan and my boyfriend of the time described ice storms there that left the trees looking like they do in your pictures. We didn’t experience this that year, though the lakes were frozen and I experienced ice sculptures on the street that didn’t melt for 6 weeks for the first time in my life! Lovely photos, Eliza, and merry Christmas xo

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you, Rebecca. Ice storms are not well received for the damage they do, but they happen at least a couple times a winter. Not every storm can be nice, light powder, much preferred, as they make clean up a breeze! Our temps will not climb above freezing reliably until Feb. Strangely enough, our biggest snowfalls usually happen in March, but by then, the warmer days help melt what comes.
      Best to you in the new year!

  25. Cathy says:

    Brrr – but still beautiful! Happy new year!

  26. Jewels says:

    Stunning photos Eliza! Stay warm! Wishing you and yours a happy New Year filled with lots of love and many blessings! ❤

  27. There is something so very magical about seeing nature encased in glittering ice. Your lovely photos are a visual a/c to the sweltering temps of our African Dec/Jan summer! Stay warm and safe as you wait out for warmer temps!

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Thank you very much. Glad to send a cooling breeze your way. This is the longest spell of frigid weather that I can remember… it just goes on and on!

  28. Absolutely stunning! I looovvee Winter & this is a beautiful capture!💙
