The steps leading off our sunroom to the back yard have become treacherous! They are completely encased in a ripply sheet of  ice due to the fact that they lie underneath the main house overhang and as the snow melts off the roof, it hits the staircase and freezes.

Salt and sand are the obvious solution, but before I did that, I needed today’s photo! 🙂

  1. I love the colors and the effect the layer of ice gives to the picture. Excellent photo!

    Be safe and watch your step 🙂

    • Thanks Juan! What is astonishing is…I don’t really know where thosee colors are coming from! These are wood steps (old pressure-treated pine) that have aged over the years…but the pink and the gold tones? Who knows?!

  2. Nice abstract, maybe that’s the way to deal with this weather.

  3. Wow, you have gorgeous photography!
    I would subscribe to see what you put up each day.. but sadly, I don’t know how.
    But I still love your images!
