Scenic Sunday: Winter Beauty

An ice-covered tree in our front yard, Fairfield Glade, Tennessee. January 31, 2010.

Winter is not my favorite season of the year (just ask Betsy), but I will admit that at times it can be quite beautiful.  This picture was taken back in 2010, the day after an ice storm here on the Plateau.  The sky was an unbelievable blue that beautifully set off the ice-covered branches of a tree in our front yard.

    This scenery of the frozen tree was what I used to dream about when I was a child, after Canada, I no longer yearn for snow, and am very happy to enjoy it from photos from yours.
