Ice was on everything, highlighting structures we might not normally notice, bringing them lower so we could see them. Overhanging branches reached down like nets, barricading the usual paths.
Winter weather can sure be beautiful! In Oklahoma, usually when the sun comes out, the photographer must hurry to get the shots before the beauty melts away.
These were fun to shoot, making me think of a xylophone or wind chimes with these spaced icicles and intermittent drips.
Can you imagine these drips to the sound of a xylophone?
It is funny, I want to say this is a moment frozen in time, but really the ice was melting. I was trying to take a photo of one of the drips just as it accumulated enough mass to break away from the cohesion water displays.

Where did “they” come up with the idea of green and red as the colors for Christmas?
