    I took this where I work. It is grass, after the ice storm we had last week.

    Nice! Looks like you had quite the ice storm.

    Yes we did. Where this was taken got around 1 1/2" of ice, on top of a couple inches of sleet. There are parts of KY that will be without power for another 2 weeks.

    I like that, Deke.

    It kinda reminds me of something in some sci-fi movie. We had ice like that right after I got my camera but my pics have green, green grass in them. They just don't look as good as this does.

    I like that. You must've got down in the ice yourself to get that pic. Can you elaborate on the specifics of the lens setup?

    I was using the camera we keep on the aircraft. It's one of the Sony pocket cameras. I just held it down at ground level. I have another pic where I pre-focused on a distant object before I took the pic. I'll put that up, too.
