It was well over 40 degrees on Sunday and the snow had melted enough that snow shoes just weren't necessary. So I dragged spouse off for a brief walk through Baltimore Woods.
We discovered a few fun things, but my favorite was the ice in a little stream we wandered past. Most of the stream was wide open flowing water, but there was one area that was shaded by some pine tree coverage and had elaborate ice formations. The light levels were very low and that made photography mighty tricky, especially since I'm still learning to understand this camera. I took more than 200 pictures (have I mentioned my need for a new external hard drive?), and only a handful were good. It was fascinating to stare at all the spiky, bubbly formations, though.
Given that it's supposed to be 50 degrees and is pouring out today, I suspect all these gems will be completely gone by this afternoon.
