Massive ice Thursday night, followed by a coating of snow on Friday. Two days later, the trees are still encrusted in ice, power is still out for many, and clean up crews are working overtime. I headed to Thacher Park for a hike, and I was the only one crazy enough to be out apparently. After a short but breathtaking hike, 300+ pictures (maybe something for the Bokeh challenge at DPC), and watching a tree fall over from the weight of the ice on its branches, I was happy to get back to the car where my thermos of hot chocolate was waiting for me!

I love this shot because of the way the trees take on the appearance of glass. Unfortunately, the lens I was using causes terrible color fringing around the edges of bright areas, so the original of this shot was all purple and green.
