Here are some photos from last Sunday (Dec. 7) in Maine. The sun came out enough to make things sparkle a little, but there wasn’t an overall gorgeous sparkly time. Even when there is, those are really hard to photograph.
A close-up of some weed stems (maybe they’re blueberry bushes, not weeds!)
Close-up of some pine needles covered in ice — you can imagine how having ice like this on all the needles makes the branches six or ten times as heavy as usual! No wonder the pine trees always lose big limbs in ice storms!
Arlene liked how evenly spaced and uniform the icicles on the birdbath were.
