I was lucky to have the time to go hiking about for a few hours, and found a few interesting things (in my eyes) to photograph. Here are some of them. First, ice sheets hanging from a squirrel baffle beneath a bird feeder.
A reflection at the opposite bank of Crabtree Creek.
A precipitously leaning tree that was outlined nicely by the snow it caught thanks to its angle.
A bend in the creek.
Rusty bridge rails.
Two views from that bridge.
Some other people had to be out in the freezing weather, such as this surveyor.
I revisited a condemned bridge that I've photographed before.
I like the way the structure of the wooden planks shows through the snow accumulation.
This slower tributary of Crabtree Creek froze, which helped to emphasize the reflected colors and shadow patterns.

From a few days ago, here are some photos when we had ice but no snow:
Highly variable weather has been the norm this year.
