FRISCO — Winding down to the last couple of months of calendar polls, I was curious to see what I’d find in the November archive. It wasn’t a big snow month, so I wasn’t expecting to see many wintry shots. What I did find were some nice ice abstracts and a few other images that represent that late autumn feeling that the world is gradually freezing up.
