My wife and I had made our annual October trip to the Black Hills. Where our cabin was, it had snowed lightly; but a few miles away, there had been freezing rain followed by several inches of snow. I spent about 30 minutes walking through ankle-deep snow to photograph ice-encased leaves and branches. Altogether, I took about 75 photos but this is my favorite.
