Imprisoned Fire, macro photograph of red cypress branch frozen in ice
Nature has a way of creating stunning ice sculptures out of trees and plants. On a rare occasion, even south states get to see such wonder. On top of seeing such an extraordinary phenomenon, experiencing it is a different thing. Each branch and leaf becomes incredibly heavy, and creates music with each breath of the wind. Many people dislike winter, but one has to really open eyes and senses to let the magic in. Of course, after that a hot cup of tea is a must!
