Description

The previous night's ice storm on Short Hill mountain in northern Virginia left it's mark throughout the next day, covering all of the vegetation above a certain elevation. I spent a number of hours waiting for the clouds that lingered over the mountain to part and illuminate the ice. Finally at around 2 in the afternoon they retreated enough for the mid day sun to light up both the ice and the clouds.
