Frosty


“There is a great mix of whimsy, drama and simplicity to this photograph that really makes it stand out. There is enough backlighting to illuminate the icicles yet not so much to draw your attention away from the 50’s pop idol for whom the street is named. It’s also obvious that the photographer was out in the thick of this ice storm to capture this shot. Kudos to you.”
