When I was taking photos of frost and droplets on Sunday my daughter spotted a fly. Not sure what it was doing out and about in such cold weather, but it was nice to get my first insect shot of the year.
Today is cold and frosty and I ventured out into the garden to see if I could get some photos. Firstly I was taking photos of frozen water droplets on the grass. Sadly squatting down to get photos of grass really hurts, so I couldn’t do it for long. As the sun got higher theContinue reading “Shiny”
It was a frosty morning at my parents’ house this morning so I went out in the garden to see what I could see. My favourite thing was the combination of frozen and melting droplets on the grass as the sun warmed everything up. So pretty 🙂
Yesterday morning, there was a frost and all the fallen leaves were looking pretty with a frosty coating. Sums up this time of year of autumn moving into winter, with the autumn leaves and the cold frost. Inspired by the Weekly Photo Challenge: It’s Not This Time of Year Without…
After the sunny raindrops last Saturday, the raindrops on the Sunday were quite different! I went out in the garden to see if I could get some shots of the frost and discovered there were frozen raindrops all over the place! Strange and beautiful. The quality of these photos is not as good as I’dContinue reading “Ice Droplets”
I was wandering in my parent’s garden earlier in the week and the teasels kept catching my eye. I think I may have to get some for my own garden! In this first picture it was a bright sunny winter day and the teasel was glowing with warmth. Perfect for one last entry to the weeklyContinue reading “Warm Teasel ~ Cold Teasel”
The frost was more impressive today. Yesterday was a sparse ground frost only. Today it was one of those frosts that coats everything including ground, plants, trees, and pretty much every garden fixture. I should have taken a wide shot to show how white it all was, but as usual I went the macro routeContinue reading “A world of white”
I’m visiting my parents for Christmas and on a morning potter around the garden and nearby lanes, we spotted a patch of frosty grass where you could see the little ‘towers’ of frost. Even thought it’s rather chilly, I’m kind of wishing for more hard frosts and icicles! 🙂
Today has been dry and quite bright which makes a nice change from all the rain. Downside is that it’s colder. But this means frost and ice, and a chance to get some photos of ice crystals, which makes me happy.
