Great stuff, Mark - especially the first three for me. #1 is spectacular - wish I was there (for about 2 hours to shoot and then back here where it is a lovely 25C ).

These are great! I'd probably say 1, 3, and 7 are favorites, but it's a really tough call.

5 would work for "Is, but could be" It is a pine branch, but it could be a staghorn cholla cactus.

Random Googled staghorn cholla image:

Sharp shots Mark. I agree a little sun on those spikes would have potentially been nice. Where is your snow ? exactly 14 days now we have been 'blessed' with the white stuff.

Anyway very nice shots....brrr I have to go turn the heating up now.

Mark,

very neat shots here. #3 stands out. The combination of the leaf colors and the ice is unexpected and really stands out. I also like 1 and 9. I think #9 can benefit from a touch of PP to bring out the icicles more prominently against the background. The icicles look a little Grey on my monitor.   Perhaps also adding a simple and slight vignette (or even revers vignette) may work.

Yesterday morning, after two nights of freezing mist, and no letup in between, we awoke to a landscape covered in thick frost. Twigs, leaves and fence netting were covered in delicate, spiky frost with some of the spikes having grown up to about 2cm long. Sadly there was no sun yesterday, as it would have made the scene really beautiful, but even so it was quite spectacular. Jack Frost had been working hard .
