Silo

Tyringham, Massachusetts

The strange look in the distance is freezing rain coating the hilltops with ice.

Carl, What kind of vine is growing on that silo? Wild grape doesn't do that, but maybe oriental bittersweet? Around here (SE PA) I would guess poison ivy.

Bittersweet is real likely. Tomorrow I'll check the full size files and see if I can confirm.

After looking at 100% view, I don't think it's bittersweet. The vines are growing randomly instead of spiraling and the thickness is consistent from top to bottom. Bittersweet gets very thick—python-like—at the base and tapers as it gets higher.
