17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The morning after an Oklahoma Ice storm

This photo was taken to capture the ice recently deposited by an overnight ice storm on every surface large and small. The winterized yellowed grass in the foreground is encased and illuminated as the sun rises in the background reflecting light everywhere. It’s just a yard in an apartment complex overlooking a golf course but it’s transformed into something beautiful by ice and light.
