Icicles on Glass

After heavy snows in December, a rare January thaw has turned a lot of that snow into ice. Melt water from snow on the roof of my sunroom formed these wandering, tuberous icicles as it trickled down a curved pane at the top of the wall. I liked the way the frost that formed on the glass overnight left the icicles' outlines boldly highlighted. The depth of the curved pane necessitated that I stack two differently focused images to obtain sufficient depth of focus from top to bottom.
