That is an interesting (if temporary) yard sculpture! You have a great eye!

Farmchick said...

Frost is nature's art and who can compete with that?!

Dimple said...

You both remind and inspire me! Frost is fascinating!

Jack said...

Isn't that interesting. I would not have thought to capture this.

Jan said...

Me, too. We don't get frost, often, but I find it fascinating, too. Great photo.

MarieElizabeth said...

Those are really big crystals. I love how the ice is a new subject every day.

That is particularly fascinating frost. I thought it was fancy sugar on a fancy truffle, at first! Very nifty shot.

Man that makes me feel cold.

Frost and rust: what an intriguing combination!

Lorna said...

Rust (and frost) never sleeps.

It looks like a pastry!

Kate's right, I was thinking piece of cake!
Jack Frost is a master artist. :)

Looks like sugar, fantastic photo.

Liz said...

RedWillow said...

I love this ..

Andrea said...

Very beautiful, i can just scrape it for my shake! Frost is alien to us, and we go to snowparks just to feel how cold is cold, so we can relate to fellow humans living in your situations, haha!

Randy said...

Amazing photograph!

At first I thought it was a rough cookie covered with canded sugar :-) frost always amazes!

Nikki . said...

Beautiful photo, love the colours in the background and the contrast between the rust and the frost...

Maaike said...

your frost looks like sugar

VP said...

You caught something very usual in a new amazing way: you can feel the frost...

Annelie said...

Fantastic frost picture!

cieldequimper said...

Hey, that looks really good!

Father Christmas has looked more or less like that for a long, long time (old engravings show him just like that but with a darker red. So the brighter red is probably imported from Coca Cola land).

GrandmaK said...

Looks like a tasty delight, like crystallized sugar over a bit of chocolate! Very nice! Wishing you a Merry Christmas! Cathy

Greyscale Territory said...

This reminds me of a layered chocolate cake with fancy icing! How clever is Nature! Beautiful photo!

If there is one thing I shudder at is the thought of my warm skin touching frozen metal!! Fantastic photo tho.

My Macro Monday Link Do stop by for a visit if you can find time. Happy Holidays!

Magical! You got such a great shot of the frost.

Beautiful in its simplicity. I like it.

Jacob said...

That's exactly what Jack Frost's girlfriend said. That's not, however, what Robert Frost's girlfriend said. She was mad 'cause he lost his warmth!

Seriously, I do like the frost on the nut.

Have a great day!

Sugar or salt crystals---it is fascinating. Great close-up. MB

That is amazing. Spectacular job with that capture.

It looks like a tasty cake ;-)

helenmac said...

WOW, FROST FOREVER! Well, until spring comes which it must for the sake of our sanity!

Rachel Roushey said...

The frost looks so much like tiny crystals. Nicely done.
