I was happy to have caught the sparkle in this photo.
The sun had risen up over our house and was lighting up the ice from behind.
For a moment the landscape was all a-twinkle.
I'm not alone out there with my camera.
Many folks are snapping photos of the ice covered trees,
trying to capture what we see, this landscape transformed and shimmering.
A friend and reader of this blog, Carolyn Stanley took this photo
which I couldn't resist playing with in picasa:
Glittery Sunset, by Carolyn Stanley (fooled with by me)

I'm finding these icy photos are super fun to explore in the editing process.
I've been having a ball playing with shadows, highlights, warmth, and cropping
- coaxing out the icy sheen.
Have a great Saturday!
