Sunday Morning Melt

I was sitting at the kitchen table after breakfast this morning and glanced out the kitchen window. The sun was blasting through the melting ice on the tree in our back yard, and I had to make some pictures. As usual, I reached for the Fujifilm X10 -- there was no thought of using the Sony -- and headed out onto the back deck.

Our back deck is completely screened in, so I was forced to shoot through the screens, creating a little bit of a "star filter" effect in some of the images.
