Not a great shot, I know, but I thought the snow on the power line was really interesting. There simply was no other vantage point to take this from, though I would have liked to have been closer. Also, I was shooting it through a window. I used bw and a tight crop to try and hide some of the more distracting elements. :-)

That's a really interesting shot Karma. You did well to capture it.

Amazing phenomena. Very difficult to see it clearly - higher magnification on a smaller section would improve it.

Is that really snow? I never saw anything like that before. It's pretty neat! How on earth did you get up there to take the photo? On a ladder? (I love photos that make me wonder how they were made.)

Good eye! I'm glad you grabbed your camera fast: they fall easily, don't they? To show us this wonder even better, you might try more contrast, or perhaps a different agle.

Wow. I have never seen snow like this before. Interesting shoot. I like the panorama. The lines of the roof and window don't flow.

Interesting phenomenon. A shallower DOF would have isolated the curls from the house in the background.

I have to award a 10 for being so damn different, sure those other shots are good but who has ever seen this?
  Photographer found comment helpful.

I'm interested to know how this happened. Very unusual looking. Not the sharpest shot, but pretty good overall. Probably would have been better if you could have found another perspective - the window doesn't work well as a background.
