Recent snow was followed by a very brief period of sunshine; I grabbed my camera and tripod and utterly failed to capture the exquisite geometric patterns that are visible to the naked eye.  Hopefully, subsequent attempts on my part will result in better pictures!

Steamy tree

At first glance this picture looks similar to the previous post except this time it is steam instead of smoke.  Recent rains have gotten everything pretty wet, including the trunks of trees.  Even though the air temperature was in the 30's bright sunshine brought enough warmth to vaporize the water in the bark.
