As I geared up for a Georgia snowstorm — possibly even three or four inches — I contemplated what photographs I might take of the local landscape blanketed in white. The storm arrived with drizzle and occasional moderate rain. The overnight air temperature dropped into the 20s, but a warm air mass overhead prevented the precipitation from changing over to snow. The ground, meanwhile, remained fairly warm. The result was a fairylike coating of ice on trees and shrubs in my yard but no snow. I wouldn’t call the result icicles — that would be a bit pretentious a term for these frozen droplets of water, most extending an inch or less from the tip of a leaf. So I will call them “ice drops” instead. After photographing quite a few of them, I was surprised to find that they lent themselves well to semi-abstract compositions. I took all of these shots with a Ztylus macro lens and my iPhone 5 camera; I made a few edits in Snapseed, mostly square crops and selective changes to image brightness. Enjoy!
