Nicely done, Jeff! I think I like the 1st one best. It does make a nice abstract either way.
It's in the low 20's here this AM but due to warm up!

Very awesome capture, Jeff! Heard the weather there and elsewhere and couldn't believe it! Heard that's why "global warming" has been changed to "climate change."

I am so happy you are enjoying some winter captures, Jeff...I guess I take this all too much for granted and need to venture out and see the beauty of winter more often...I know I will have at least 6 more weeks so no rush for me!
