8:30 in the morning and I was already at work in the studio when the need for some hot, peppermint tea bubbled up inside me. The kitchen is just one door down so cup in hand, I headed out the door. I stopped dead in my tracks. .A brilliant blue sky and trees encrusted with ice and snow twinkled all around me. Tea would wait! I immediately turned around and headed back into the studio for my camera. I knew I had to capture the moment NOW.. The heat of the sun was already warming the world around me and the trees' icy crystal coats would soon slip off their limbs.
I spent about 30minutes taking pictures, changing lens and downloading the images. By then the intense Wyoming sun had indeed melted the ice and the effect was gone. What's left is the memory of wonder and the images I can share with you. Enjoy!
