School in Jamestown was cancelled today because of an ice storm that coated everything. The roads were clear and salted and proved to be no problem at all. But because so many students walk to school, and since they do not salt the sidewalks… School was cancelled.
I was excited about getting to work early and planned to take a walk before going to the office – to get some photos of the lovely gem-like coating… I drove the 9 miles to work and within a mile of the Center, the ice disappeared. There was nothing at the Center!
Lucky me, it didn’t warm up enough to melt the ice and I was able to snap a few shots when I got home and took the dog for a walk.
I wish I understood my camera better. I took over 70 shots and never did capture the sparkling beauty of the icy landscape. Any suggestions from you photographers out there would be appreciated, especially on these shots of the landscapes. I just couldn’t get the sparkle! (Click on them for a larger view.)
The sparkles show a little better on the right… But it’s still not what my eyes saw… (Or is this another case where I was seeing with my mind, not my eyes?)
