frozen twig in snow

Canada, 2003.02.27

This is a twig lying under some snow in the Mount Pleasant cemetery. The shot was taken early one morning following an ice storm that had started with strong winds and light snow and had progressed to freezing rain.

These conditions had set up a situation where plenty of twigs had been torn off of branches, to fall among the new snow that was falling/blowing. There, the light layer of ice had entomed them. This is one such twig.

You can make out the tips of the twig's fingers, which are under the thin layer of ice atop the snow. I think it makes this shot!
