Beauty in the midst of destruction…



If you’ve ever been in an ice storm, you know how eerily beautiful they can be. You also most likely know how destructive they are. Several years ago, we lost power for nine days and eventually lost many trees in our neighborhood to disease because the weight of the ice caused the branches to tear away from the trunks during the storm.

Still, it was amazing to see things you see everyday— in a different way. A chain link fence becomes a work of art when it’s encased in ice.

My friend George has been taking photos of the ice storm in his area this week— and I really think he’s done a great job of capturing beauty in the midst of destruction. Thanks for allowing me to share your photos, George!

(note: the photo at the top of this entry is my favorite— I think it looks like an angel)
