We are having a formidable winter here in Chicago, and that includes formidable ice formations such as these on my neighbors’ porch.
 
 
 
Flower baskets dripping ice
 
 
 
Clearly something is wrong with the gutter, and in the long run that’s not so good, but for now it makes for curtains of ice.
 

How about these layers?
 
 

 
I was so taken by capturing the ice that I donned fingerless gloves and put on my coat to step out on our porch to take these shots of the icicles across the street.
