Happy Holidays to Everyone!
You may need to click on this image and see the larger version to appreciate the magic. We had an ice storm one year (we usually get several each winter) and it left a crystalline glaze on all the trees. But the sun suddenly came out and hit the trees at exactly the right angle to make the entire forest look as if it was fabulously decorated with glittering "lights" of every rainbow color. It was amazing. These photos did not begin to capture the dazzling beauty, but I had only just enough time to grab my camera and take a very few shots before the sun disappeared behind the clouds again. The sparkling magic lasted for only about 2 minutes and this is all I was able to get of the moment.
Sometimes joy is like that, brilliantly surprising and unexpected. When it comes your way, treasure it in all its forms.
Wishing everyone Peace, Joy and delight in this special time of year.
