mist and ice: photographs

Frosted leaf, Vivien Blackburn

It was -6C today and the mist and ice looked beautiful so I stopped going to work and coming home to take some photos.



The remnants of warmth in the leaf colours looked amazing contrasting with the coldness of the ice.
and the sun was setting as I came home - just after this I left the clear skies and drove into very very thick fog and grey-whitenout-ness.

As I wrote on your THROUGH THE LENS, I am so glad that you are a person who will stop what she is doing and will seize the moment, then share the loveliness with us.

I am feasting on these and the ones on LENS. Thank you for them.

Beautiful sunset ... and that leaf! We just can't compete with nature when it throws up a trump card like this - so perfect. Wish winter felt as nice as it looks!

That leaf is amazingly beautiful, Vivien. I guess it's even colder at the moment.

I always love your photos.

yes, this weather does give some great opportunities - usually when I don't have a camera and am heading for work Z:>( !

Robyn it's FREEZING at the moment and looks like being a hard winter this year
