“Shiny Trees” in West Seattle (65/365)

On day 65 of my Project 365, Seattle was coated under a layer of ice. The predictions of the great thaw were about 24 hours premature.

One of my earliest photography memories involved a similar ice storm back in the suburbs of Cleveland, where I grew up. It had been a cold and brilliantly bright day following that storm. I spent hours taking pictures of all the “shiny trees” with my old point-and-shoot camera.

I was hoping we might get a sunbreak yesterday so I could try to capture some more ice-covered trees in sunlight. But it never cleared up. So I waited until nighttime, grabbed my camera and tripod, and trudged through the neighborhood. I didn’t have too much trouble finding any “shiny trees.”
