Ruby Tuesday: Flash Frozen

Ice berry

The ice storm that hit the midwest has been destructive, but it hasn't been without its charms. Here a scarlet berry is encased in ice, preserved like an insect in amber until the next thaw.

What a magical shot. I love the contrast between the shimmery cold of the ice and the heat of the red berry.

Have a great holiday!

I agree with your assessment that the frozen precip can offer beauty as well as mayhem. A subtle red in that berry, and a lovely photo!

It has kind of a sci-fi vibe about it, like the berry will be thawed out in the year 2541 and whole species will be saved by its medicinal properties or something.
