In Focus: Frozen

My Monday morning this week started with photographing a rolled over Jeep Wrangler in a ditch on Randall Road.

As I headed toward Batavia, I saw the flurry of emergency and tow truck officials working the scene, so I pulled over and took a few photos in the frigid, minus 15 degree temperatures, and headed back on the road as more reports of vehicle crashes and a Sunday fire in St. Charles came in. 

That is where I found the pristine icicles that were created from firefighters’ hoses as they put out the fire on South Third Street in St. Charles. At the time, it summed up how I felt – frozen – even though I had my full menagerie of cold weather gear on.
