Frosty Morning

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.

  11. I haven't seen frost like this in a while. I guess your weather has been significantly different from ours lately. Nice work with your macro lens!

  13. Your camera and you sure pick up some great detail of the frost. We haven't had any frost this year but early spring we do sometimes have it. You do have a lot of snow, still.
