Those are some great photos from Sarcastic Mom.

Beautiful weather you're having...and the leave are still on the tree. I guess you don't get to rake. :)

Absolutely gorgeous. The first two are stunning.

Rachel said...

Holy Cow DamnTexasHolly, those are gorgeous!!

It has been tank weather all week, until last night. Right now, Nate's building a fire. But ice! Yah, we don't have any of that.

Incredible ice shots!

maggie's mind said...

Wow, seriously crazy weather, but it made for some really beautiful shots.

These are great! They're all excellent but I really love the creek!

amelia bedelia said...

beautiful pictures. At least it melts right and doesn't stick around for days like snow.

Karen said...

I agree, they're all great, but the creek ... it oozes serenity.

And I really like the pine cone tree. It's very pleasing to the eye.

cady said...

Jenni said...

Those are beautiful! The first is my favorite

Sarah said...

I love these! I won't be able to take ice shots until March (we always get horrendous ice storms in march)

Jennifer said...

These are so beautiful. Great job.

Eudea-Mamia said...

I love ice in Texas. Gorgeous for the 12 hours it hangs around. Gone the next day. The best.

Fantastic shots.

Miss said...

I LOVE pictures of ice. These are fabulous!

Elaine A. said...

This weather is NUTS!

But hey, at least it gave you a chance to get these wonderful pictures! : )

Maggie May said...

wonderful pictures, glad you shared.

Julie said...

I know the ice storms are bad for things...orchards get damaged,
power lines go down, not great...

But they make for some awesome photos!

Roger said...

Those are some excellent photos Holly. I imagine you were wrapped up in your parka while taking them though. :) We only have about a foot of snow on the ground here, with more coming. AND, the worst part is; our HIGH temps for Thursday and Friday are supposed to be -2, and 0. I think I might just apply for that job in Texas afterall. :)

bejewell said...

Those are great... you guys obviously got more of a blast than we did in Austin. We're expecting another good one later this week... can't wait to see if you come up with more great shots!

Rachael said...

Well, sorry you're cold (not really...I don't REALLY feel sorry for you on that one, one bit, ahem), but WOW, your pictures are AWESOME! So, I'm guessing they were worth the cold snap.

On a limb with Claudia said...

What gorgeous photos! Wow. I've never seen anything like this....

then I wonder....

Did you wear a parka over your silk shortie and snake boots to take these photos?

Jenni Jiggety said...

Wow! Terrific shots, Holly!

Louise said...

"Ice storms" are so pretty, but oh-so-annoying. Hope you have power and that you can get around a little.

the planet of janet said...

connie said...

Ice? In Texas?

Great photos.

spinning in our own direction said...

Ok you are the insane one who was out in the FREEZING cold taking pictures!!! OVER the TOP!!!

IndigoSunMoon said...

Living in Alabama, we rarely see snow. Ice is more what we get. The pictures are beautiful!

Natalie said...

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

I have never woken up to that in my life. Maybe someday.

Veronica said...

They are so cool looking though! Even if it was cold and stuff.
