I like the cool tones and the different organic shapes growing towards each other.
This is very odd but quite compelling

It is as if I am seeing through your eyes. You've put me in the perspective of you.
Very nice odd view. I like the crop and the cold tones
Dave Bonta: Thanks Richard - and everyone else - for your generous responses.

Cool! You do get the idea that you're seeing this through the eyes of the photographer. Why is that? The perspective? Or because it must be from under an overhang where the icicles drip from?
Dave Bonta: Yes. I cropped out the edge of the front porch eaves. And of course the wide-angle makes the icicles appear to lean toward the center, though my main reason for using it was to try and keep the elm in focus.
