@Doug: Yes the weight of Ice took a branch off a Scots Pine further along the earthwork

"ohhhh nice!".....yup - those were my actual words sitting here. A man after my own heart - this DoF and composition rock!!!

An image that corresponds very well to your words. Crystal branches and delicate beauty. A small bump can break them. They are brittle as glass ... A work of art! of nature and you knew your own view! A hug, Grouser!

Enjoyed number one as well, but this is just spectacular! Am really, really impressed with your "point and shoot" - brilliant quality!

Wow ... my first thought was of a leaded glass window as we look through it. You did a fine job of capturing the foreground details while still maintaining clarity beyond!
