I shot a picture of the ice on the windshield on Valentine's Day before my husband scraped it off...When I looked at the picture itself I could see an abstract optical illusion of part of a face in the rough texture that emerged the more I studied it...I converted it into sepia and sharpened the contrast of what I could detect. Can you see it too? The mouth and the eye were evident and the contour shape of a face and hair but not as clear the nose. I almost deleted it until I looked at it closer and was amazed of what could be seen when training the eye to look through the roughness of the ice and to see more than just plain ice...

Even though I complain about snow and ice there are some benefits that make me look beyond the inconvenience of the weather to find the beauty of what it offers.

Best View in Light Box! Thank you!!!
