Winter Beauty in Wainwright

After several days of ice fog the sun came out today and the world was a wonder of beautiful glittering white. I took some photos around my neighbourhood and town. I think it was one of the most beautiful places in the world today. I've been sewing like crazy for a week but I can't post photos until after Christmas. Enjoy some lovely frosty trees though. :)
