Thematic Photographic - Quiet, as a World of Ice

This week's Thematic Photographic topic is quiet. Many images come to mind, but tonight I am posting some photos of the "quiet" I awoke to this morning. Yesterday's drizzle turned to ice and by this morning the trees, bushes, fences, and roads were encased in ice. With not a puff of wind there was no crackling, no snapping, and not even a popping of the ice. It was so quiet and so beautiful. So enough with the words.... here are some photos --- Ok, lots of photos!






Ice is nothing but frozen water, which in any form can be so beautiful and, in this case, quiet. Show us your quiet .........

Hi Barb:

These pictures are "out of this world" - how gorgeous - ice storms are not nice but you have certainly captured "the beauty of an ice storm". Well done!
I have sent you 4 e-mails and I received yours last night and replied to it - for some reason they are not getting through - I will try my "hotmail" address and see if that works.

Beautiful ice photos! It does look quiet, but I can imagine the snapping of branches too! A friend experienced quite a bit of damage from the ice last week - I referred to it as a "violent beauty."

I believe Heidi's idea of "restless quiet" applies to your photos. There is always a tension when ice is on everything, a quiet cracking that seems foreboding.

I used the wintery scene in my definition, too.

It is a quiet you can "see"

Omigosh! I DID call you Linda!!! I am embarrassed beyond belief!!! Silly me!!! I am so sorry!

Hey... I bet I had just been on Linda's blog and had her in my mind (they are moving from Kansas to South Carolina this week!)

Well, BARB... You know I think so fondly of you. You could call me Lorraine and we will be even! ;-)

Love and peace this Christmas!!!
Sincerely, Lorraine
