Ice Storm 2013-The Beauty Up Close

In the second of a three part pictorial on the ice storm of 2013 that hit Ontario, we take a close-up look at the beauty of the ice storm and the nearly 30mm of freezing rain that fell over the course of twenty four hours, coating everything with a thick layer of sparkling ice.

Normally this coat of ice lasts a morning before it melts. This time, thanks to dropping temperatures, the ice remained for five days, providing ample opportunity for photographing.

Most of these pictures were captured using a macro lens and a Really Right Stuff tripod.
