|The evergreen covered by ice, after ice storm.|
Freezing rain can happen anytime from fall to spring. It develops when snow falls through a layer of warm air, melts and turns to rain. The rain continues to fall and then passes through a layer of cold air. The cold air, in turn, cools the rain until its temperature falls below freezing. Oddly enough, the rain does not freeze. This is called supercooling. When these supercooled droplets hits the ground, wire or branches, it freezes instantly.
Freezing rain can cause power outages and millions of dollars of damage,
North America's worst ice storms are commonly associated with slow-moving low-pressure systems having very large temperature differences between colliding warm, moist Gulf air and very cold Arctic air in their northeastern sector. When these storm systems stall for an extended period over one region, heavy, accumulations of ice may blanket a region, causing much destruction. The great ice storm that hit New England and Quebec in 1998 is an extreme example of a stalled storm.

It's interesting shot, but it'll look better if You'll crop the Upper Right part with purple line... it's lens problem.
Fun point of view here, Ziggy. If you cropped as tellerka suggests, you might lose some of your wonderful lines, so maybe there's a color solution. I still like the photo a lot, though.

Now I have learnt a lot. I never thought of stalled storms ( I only thought it happened to cars :)) I found this post very interesting. The image is great as well.
Very well done and thanks for posting.
