Gripped by Ice by gaborcsigas Gripped by Ice by gaborcsigas
Raindrops froze instantly after they fell, covering everything in cold glass, the icy weight pulling everything down. It was a wonderful but a scary and weird sight at once - and not even my grandmother remembers seeing anything like this (in our country), no matter the many years she's lived.

Hard winters are coming.

Third of a 3-piece series. The first one - a non-macro view of the branches of a tree, covered in glassy ice - can be seen (if dA works) here: [link] . The second one, of leaves, is here: [link] .

Colours are slightly retouched.

Hope you like it.

Gripped by Ice by ~whoisnot The clarity, crispness and innocence captured in such simplicity presents the beautiful side of winter. ( Suggested by greenfaery and Featured by ZirTuan )

You chose to expose the one twig that managed to "free" itself. I should think this is a cheerful thing ;)
I can't believe I missed it while browsing your gallery. Silly me :ashamed:
It's very beautiful!

:bow: thanks! yep i chose that twig and the surrounding ones because of the contrast - had i showed only ice-covered stuff, there would've been no firm ground for comparison...
as for missing a piece in a gallery, don't worry, most galleries have so many pieces in them that makes very easy to overlook a bunch...

it looks like you took them off the tree/bush and had them on a white background or something??? well anyway, it's absolutely lovely. delicate.

first of all: thanks. :nod: as for the background: no, i didn't take them off (even though that would also have been an option :) ), the background shows a completely empty segment of a very light-gray sky whitened further by retouching. (i just had to find the right position to take the shot from.)
