Dry grasses and the lower limbs of trees were coated in icicles in an orchard on Lower Sacramento and Mettler roads late on Jan. 17. Motorists stopped and photographed the orchard with cameras and phones. (Camera: Canon 40D. Lens: Canon 16-35L at 16mm. Exposure: 1/8000th sec. at f/2.8. ISO: 100)
Photographer’s note: While cruising around looking for standalone art, I found myself on Lower Sacramento Road near Eight Mile Road making a usual loop back to West Lane. I noticed people were pulling over and that they had cameras. As I looped back, I was greeted by this winter wonderland created by a freezing night and sprinklers left on. I took a low stance, dodging the sprinklers, which were still on. I played with all angles and lined the sun behind the icicles.
