Best picture I've taken in a while--

There was a pretty icicle on the corner of our house during the Great .24-inch Blizzard of '07. It had developed a fork at some point, which I thought was unusual enough to warrent taking a few pictures. One of them I shot at night with a strong flash. The result was striking, arguably the best shot I've taken since that photo of Josef's cat.

Hidden behind a cut because it's a large image.

Thanks! Glossy and transparent things don't usually turn out so well...

yeah... and it's probably extra shiny b/c i'm hopped up on 5 days worth of cold and ear infection meds...

oohh... it would look really cool upside down, too... like spiers or some such thing....

Thank you and thank you :) The only real secret to photography seems to be to take 50 shots of everything...

That's a really nice pic! It's interesting how the icicle bifurcated at the end. Perhaps the wind shifted directions and it started growing the other way. Hope you had a Happy Birthday!

Whines bought me a digital photo frame, so I'll get to have it sparkling on my desktop next week :)

Breath-taking!

That is definately my favorite photo you've taken... (and trust me, the photo of you basking in the glory of 'Oatmeal' is a hard one to surpass!)

Wonderful job! <=)

Thank you! I still don't think it outranks my picture of Whines's cat, though.

Oh wow... now I hadn't seen that one before... You should seriously think about selling prints!
