At lunch today Tandra picked me up. I took one look at the trees and said "We have to go home and get the camera." The larger branches and trunks were very dark, but the smaller twigs were covered with frost, creating a really cool contrast effect within each tree. In addition, the sky was actually dark enough that this rare instance occurred - that the tree branches were *lighter* than the sky behind them. We took black & white photos of trees, the river with the ice on it, some close-ups of branches and one fir tree in particular that had a little ball of snow on top of one of the branches which was covered in frost. I'll post them later when they get scanned.
