Frost/ Macro Monday

Frost on rose leaf

Until today, we'd had many frosty nights and little snow, unlike many of the communities close by. But today we're getting a dusting and I fear by tomorrow we may have enough to shovel.  I think it's time to get out my winter boots.

Oh dear! We're getting a blast of arctic air this week and I don't like it at all...it's supposed to be in the 20s for about four nights! Very unusual. We've lived here six years and for four of those years we had maybe two nights during the winter when it got below freezing...

No snow, though.

But you're used to it!

Hi again! Re your question on Stone Creek: Ah...the way I photographed this varies the perspective...

If you enlarge the photo and look closely, you will see (almost) two golf carts on the hill...In actuality, they are probably about 175 yards away.

It's like an edge of rhinestones.
Very well observed. A small gem.

Simply amazing! I always look forward to seeing snow shot around the world at this time, just to bring some chill to my hot weather here.

Love the frost EG, and if you will be getting what we have you definately will need your high boots. Lots of snow heading our was, all off Lake Erie though.

Nice macro! I like the color through the frost.

Andrea said...

Now, that is really exquisite! and the composition is really WOW, nobody will know what it is if you did not reveal it. You should have a contest for us not living in temperate countries, nobody will get the right answer, haha!

Frost makes everything look so special. It's amazing to me how plants survive everything that's thrown at them!
We have freezing fog here today - pretty, but treacherous.

Fabulous photo... love the frosty leaf... reminded me of those delicious frost coated jelly sweets...

Woody said...

Don;t think of it as needing to get out your boots, think of it as more photographic opportunities :-) Nice ice.
