Somehow we had some freezing rain the other day, even though the temperature was -12°C (10°F). I don't know what atmospheric condition allowed that to happen, but obviously there was warmer air up above us. Then the next night we had heavy frost. The result was some beautiful icy frost on the trees.
I drove down one of my favourite sideroads where it would be safer to stop, with neat tree shadows crossing the road.
The canopy of trees was white against the blue sky.
Very cold, but just a beautiful sunny winter day.
That is beautiful. Love those trees.ReplyDelete
Our storm will hit Sunday and Monday...single digit temps. We will freeze in our tracks. I'm not even sure how to handle your deep cold. Brrrrr!ReplyDelete
Freezing rain makes for some lovely photo ops. Looks like you found plenty! Nice pics.ReplyDelete
Nothing like those blue winter skies with snow cover. And the tree shots are just beautiful.ReplyDelete
The effect is magical. I love the road and I'm glad that I don't have to drive on it.ReplyDelete
Beautiful photos! I love the tree lined road. Very magical.ReplyDelete
Trees are so beautiful, whatever the season, but these icy jewelled boughs sparkle with luxury.ReplyDelete

I've always thought frost on trees looks so magical. Your photos prove that it is. Loved them.ReplyDelete
Beautiful pictures! I noticed trees like that when I went into town the other day. There must have been a similar temperature event here too because it's been darn cold! Love the shadowy casts on the side roads.ReplyDelete
Freezing rain at that temperature does sound a bit odd, but the beauty of the trees it landed on is gorgeous, FG. I drove along a similar road this week, happy for the winter tires and sand as I navigated the part that got hilly and twisty. It was beautiful, though.ReplyDelete
