I took this picture a week and a half ago, at the tail end of the winter storm. The power had just come back on after being off for for several hours. I stepped outside and stood in the backyard, surrounded by snow and feeling frustrated and angry. Then I looked up and I saw the sun reflecting off of these icicles that were hanging from our roof. After getting my camera, I snapped this picture.
To me, this picture is a reminder that there’s beauty to be found during even the darkest of times. Sometimes, it’s right above you.
The day after I took this picture, the temperature finally rose above freezing, the snow started to disappear, and these icicles fell from the roof, landed in the grass, and quickly melted.
