One morning leaving Costco, the outside window was covered with beautiful frost patterns.  Of course, they weren’t really black and white, but they certainly look dramatic with Picasa 3’s Holga-ish edit. So let’s pay homage to the beauty of winter as we usher in spring and look forward to all the color to come.  For my friends in the Southern Hemisphere, you have this beauty to anticipate.

    • Sue, winter is full of glory, just different, less lush glories that those of spring and, even more, summer. Always glad to highlight some of them and glad you like these.


  2. Hammad Rais says:

    Such great captures! I did felt a chill in my spine after seeing these

  3. Dan Antion says:

    Beautiful patterns!

  4. Wonderful shots. Snowing like crazy here today. 😦 Spring has been postponed.

    • Judy, I wondered whether the prediction of lots and lots of snow in New England and parts of Colorado had come true. Sorry that spring has been postponed, but glory in the beauty of winter one last (hopefully) time. 🙂


  5. Lovely, lovely, like a forest of nature’s magic, and the choice of monochrome makes their designs pop. Janet, a nice tribute to winter as it becomes the past, and we welcome spring. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Good morning, Sally. It’s a winter morning as far as temperatures go, but I just got back from a wonderful walk in the park. No photos today, as I was walking with a friend who has two dogs and we were on the move, but a great time. Spring is taking its time here, heightening the anticipation. The sun is out and it’s going to be a lovely day.

    I have always wonder what the point of having the Holga-ish filter was!? Thank you for giving me a reason to try that function some time.

  8. LavendarLadi says:

    I love it!! Beautiful photo!

  9. bythebriny says:

    Love your black and white edit!

  10. It’s like a magic silver color! Well done, Janet.

  11. Suzanne says:

    What interesting photos. You really capture the magic of frost here.

  12. Lignum Draco says:

    Nice shot, but it never gets that cold where I am. 🙂

    Costco? Our favorite store! Everything we buy is in such bulk that we never finish it and have to throw a lot away. And still it’s cheaper for us than shopping at a regular supermarket. And those ice crystals seem to be thawing as we speak! 🙂

  14. Doors, birds, frost, regrowth and renewal…I feel I have stepped into variety central! I love the haiku writing and the mention of 27 of 28 years of marriage, should I keep going…grin. Happy belated Easter friends. xoxo
