G/Alphabe-Thursday

 Winter glitz #1

G is for GLITZ, winter glitz

Ice has a glitzy as well as a dangerous side. A year ago an ice storm coated much of Ontario with glitz.

Winter glitz #2

A wall of festive lights were still on during the day, which I'm sure was not quite as glitzy as it would have been at night.

Winter glitz #3

Ice and icicles on some rocks on the shore of Lake Simcoe.

Pretty ice images! I wish you and your family all the best in 2015. A very Happy & Healthy New Year!

Icy and cold, but so very beautiful! I think I remember you had houses and trees and all surrounded by ice, and yes, it can be dangerous..
I hope you have had a merry x'mas and now I want to wish you a very happy New Year! :)
We had a lot of snow here during x'mas, but now the fields are green!

Love your ICY captures!!! It's cold here in Portland (low 20s) but blue skies and lots of sun! I can live with that! Wishing you and yours a fabulous New Year filled with lots of love and laughter and beauty!!

You wouldn't want to get hit by some of that glitzy ice falling from a roof! Ouch!

OH, don't remind me of the 2013 ice storm, it was horrible. I only lost power for a couple of hours but some relatives had to spend a cold night with no form of heat.

Mary Hone said...

Very pretty pics.. they dazzle the eye. Luckily, we escaped that ice storm last year. One of the few places it missed.

I love the way you interpreted "glitz," EG.

All the best to you in 2015. Enjoy every day.

Pretty Winter glitzes, Ms. EG TG. I like it when we get some but none for tonight. The precipitation is correct but it won't get lower than 40F. Nothing freezes.

Burrrrr! Gotta love these, though. Ice is so wickedly cold and yet so pretty.
