Frozen Fog - Part 1

So we had a morning, a few weeks back (yes I operate a few weeks behind it seems) where there was some freezing fog.  It left the most beautiful, I thought, frost on all of the trees and plants.  I'll be sharing photos of that over the next several posts.  Today are two from my front yard.  When I stepped outside and saw this I had to run in and grab the camera and take a few shots while the husband and kid waited in the car to leave for breakfast.

 
Here you can see the long frost crystals on the plant.

 
I loved how the frost seemed to create branches of it's own.
These photos were both taken with the Nikor AF 60 mm Micro Lens. 

Friday, I'll share a few flowers from my Artfire shop but then Saturday it will be back to the frost.

  2. Beautiful pictures. They remind me of what the frost does to the prairie near me that I love.
