A few more chilly photos

Here are three more from the ice storm.

"Ice Tree"
Program AE
Exposure 0.6 sec at f5.6
ISO 800
Slightly out of focus, which adds to the effect.

"Plum Tree"
Program AE
Exposure 5.0 sec at f4.5
ISO 800

"Post lamp"
Program AE
Exposure 2.0 sec at f4.5
ISO 800
I kinda like this one. It's a solar powered LED post lamp that I caught right around dusk.

Dear Sir:

The photo "Ice Tree" has the classic composition of the bare tree covered with the seasonal glass. It is nicely down, but reflects a grad student's reproduction of the Mona Lisa.

The second shot, titled, "The Plum Tree," is a far more ambitious expression of the photographer's craft. Without hint to the light's source, there is an extraordinary manifestion of green and brownish red tints, running through the ice-covered branches of the tree.

The third shot has a specific appeal to me as the "Post Lamp" itself is a classic representation of leaded glass fixtures from the arts and crafts period of Americana. You can see lamps of this nature in East Aurora, New York, the last stronghold of the Roycrofters.

This last shot was so good, that I'm thinking of stealing it for next year's Christmas cards. I won't send you one as to avoid copyright issues.

Fondest regards,
