It was a beautiful sunny morning with frost on the trees near the house. I haven't had my macro lens out in quite awhile, so I took a few quick shots before we left for church. They turned out quite well for all the time I put into them!
When I look closely I'm always amazed at how the frost crystals stick out vertically from the twigs.
The frost on the trees made the yard very pretty in the early morning sun (that's the corner of our log cabin showing on the left).
On frosty mornings like this, the birch tree out front always looks beautiful against the sky.
The close-ups here are frost crystals on young silver maples trees close to the cabin, the green background is the colour of the cabin itself.
Frost on the side of the tree trunk. Within an hour or two it's all gone, evaporated by the sun.
