This is a set of images taken after the Louisville, KY ice storm of late January, 2009. Images taken from
approximately 800 south, fourth street (near city center.) The suburbs were hit substantially harder,
due to the more larger amount of foliage and bigger trees.
Of special interest are photos 1674, 1675, and 1676. In each of these, my hand is physically touching
the iced over branches. In each case, I try to put at least part of my hand behind the ice, so you
can see that it's not just an overlaid image on top of something else. With the ice covering, even
the smallest branches were the size of one of my fingers.
Images 1670 and 1671 are a stereo pair captured about four feet apart, if you want to get a sense for
The cameral really didn't capture the beauty of most of these scenes. The bright sunlight refracting
and reflecting from the trees made everything look like a glitter box, in a way you just can't duplicate
with christmas lights. Not only was the glitter aspect missed by the camera, but the colors that were
present are greatly faded as well.
