Silver Fairy Forest

Yesterday morning it rained at my house. Elsewhere in this area, there was snow, but near the coast there was rain. As the rainfall ended, it turned briefly to freezing rain. It did not coat the roads, but it put a fine glaze on the trees.

As soon as the rain stopped, the sun came out. All of the glaze spilled off of the trees, creating a silver shower backlit by the sun. It lasted for quite awhile, and it turned the woods into a magical place, a silver fairy forest.

These photos don't do it justice, but they're the best proof I have to offer!
