I took this one the other night during an ice storm we were having here. The freezing rain left everything glazed with a coating of ice including the Christmas lights on my bushes. Thought I'd share the effect it gave them with you. Hope you enjoy some of the colors of Christmas! :)

This is awesome...I thought it was fireworks at first, but realized that there aren't that many eye popping colors in fireworks, or at least the photos I've seen taken of them. What a great idea for an upload....at least you don't have the grey bare trees staring back at you....in my faves, Dan and on my desktop...good job :)PJ
