I’ve been having a great time sharing the frost photos that I took not long ago and I hope you’ve been enjoying them.  To see an entire park covered with diamonds of frost is to encounter a beauty too great for words and almost impossible to share even through photos.  However, I can but try.  Just imagine this times all the leaves on the ground and you might have a glimpse of what I mean and saw.   Perhaps your heart will be as full as mine was.

December’s wintery breath is already clouding the pond, frosting the pane, obscuring summer’s memory…

    Frost is so beautiful, and you have captured it perfectly here, Janet. Seeing it on the rim and veins of the leaf in crystals, and the surface of the leaf too…thanks for this glimpse of winter beauty. Liked the quotes too.

    • Jet, I’ve enjoyed so much on your blog that I’m glad you’re enjoying some of what’s here. I found lots and lots of great quotes about winter, so I’m thinking of a post just with them. We’ll see. Happy Monday.

  7. you always amaze and inspire. i love your posts-thank you!

    As you know I love these frost photos! And I know what you mean when you say how hard it is to capture the sparkle and the beauty.

    • I think it can often be easier to capture the small beauties than the beauty of the overall picture. But it’s also easier to miss the small ones, which is on reason I like to highlight them. I’m so glad you’re enjoying the frost series.

  11. Oh wow, this looks like a geode that’s been cracked open! The macro focus makes it very abstract and open to new interpretation.

    I am LOVING these frost photos! We don’t get those long crystals here — at least, I’ve never seen them. Maybe I need to look more closely!

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
