Freeze frame

A massive deep freeze blanketed the mountains over the weekend and although there were bone-chilling lows and a high number of auto accidents, the beauty of the ice-covered landscape balanced things out a bit.

Luckily I didn't have to travel far to find nature's frosty fine art. Here are a few shots from my backyard (note that I'm not a photographer and have yet to figure out Photoshop!):

Crazy to think that while I was out freezing my fingers and snapping these shots, Bubby was running around in nothing but his diaper -- at his home in the desert, of course, where the temperatures were in the 90s!
