    An ice storm, followed the next day by a snow storm, reeked a lot of havoc last week. However it created many photo opportunities.

    A mantle of white covers the back yard.

    Looking like a snow monster about to devour our travel trailer, several birch tree limbs were broken.

    Followed shortly by rain and temperatures in the mid 30's, the ice and snow were gone, but the clean up was just beginning. :)

    I was in reading UK in the 80s and saw this sort of thing
    The telephone wires crossing the road were up to 30mm thick with the ice,
    The wires were being cut before they could fall on drivers and people walking
    I learnt that riding a motorcycle in that was a really really stupid idea...
    I was lucky to walk away with nothing worse than needing to change my pants ....

    I have gone back and had a long look at your images
    I think they are brill. The blacks are black and the whites are white all the image is without a colour cast
    So well shot

    The image was shot in color. It looks the same, except the there was a blue tint over the photo. I had a polarizer on instead of a UL filter.

    I am not good at post processing; so try as I might, I could not remove the blue tint. I am sure others with better PP skills could have. So I simple desaturated the photo to get rid of the blue tint. I did not have to adjust the contrast or sharpen the photo as sometimes happens when I convert to B&W. It was white snow and black tree trunks in bright sun. :)

    As one would expect there were large areas without power for several days. Fortunately we managed to avoid that scenario. Living in the country, I do have a small generator I can use to provide some creature comforts.

    Nice winter shots.

    Fortunately my trailer is snow free, at least for now, ready to hit the road as soon as I get my vaccination. Maybe I'll see you on the road.

    Pete,

    That is the hope here also. We are scheduled for the vaccine in mid Feb. and plan to head south for a few weeks. We do sometimes dry camp at the local State Parks for a weekend of snowshoeing.

    So if you see and old guy fussing with 1910 view camera, stop and say "Hi".

    A few photos composed under the hood with cut film, make you appreciate a digital all the more.

    Take care,

    Nice set. You captured the moments well with those sagging limbs. That trailer looks to be in danger of having a huge branch for a hat.
