Natural landscapes: when the ice cometh

ICE-ENCASED WEEDS, GREENWOOD CONSERVATION AREA, AJAX, ONTARIO

Freezing rain is a common winter occurence in southern Ontario. It creates havoc for people who have to chip the ice off their windshields, but look what it does to simple weeds! I think the one on the right is shriveled Queen Anne’s Lace. I went for a shallow depth of field, which made the background — and its subtle shades of beige and off-white — quite complementary.
