Last week brought freezing rain and sleet, I took a couple of pictures of the branches encased in ice.

Have I mentioned before that I have a weird obsession with thickets? Dunno why but I am captivated by the visual complexity/texture/tones.

Happily I live here in NE where trees grow like weeds. This time of year I have a lot of them to look at. Usually my attempts to photo them fall short of the mark. They look like a mishmash. I like these two though, the ice blurs the lines of the branches and I've managed to get some depth of field in there.

I took this with my cell phone and I've noticed that it creates its own extra blur when the light is low. It combines with the low res to create a kind of watery look.
