Thanks so much for the comments! I think icicles must fascinate me because I have several shots of them. Although most of them are not very good. It takes some special light to make them glisten. :-) Mike

Fantastic shot! Great clarity, colors! I tried the same shot last week (on one of our few ice days), however, my shots did not turn out as beautiful as yours!
