On Ice

On Ice The week of Christmas 2008 we got a decent snow storm that brought Portland to an effective standstill for several days. While my work was closed for the week, I took advantage of the new scenery in my yard by taking photos until I got too cold.

I love the glow of the ice and snow that seems to be self generated.  Hopefully I was able to capture that effectively in this image.
