|The frost is thick this am|
But one of the great photographic benefits of this unusual weather was every morning found the outdoors coated in a thick white frost.
|Frosty spider web|
On weekdays, I'm out the door and at work before daylight, so I kept missing the show. But Saturday found me at home with camera. Once the sun rose, I got myself outside.
|Forgotten apple long fallen from our tree|
One of my Christmas presents was a new camera lens. Now was the perfect time to try it out!
|The last leaf|
I had great fun roaming around the yard, checking out the cool frost patterns on the vegetation.
|Empty bird feeder encased in white|
Even this little bird feeder wasn't spared. I really like how the frost crusted every bit of the wire.
|Yet another spider web|
I especially like how the frost coats the spider webs. Now they are really visible. Very cool!
|The morning sun beginning to thaw my neighborhood|
The fog started to lift, and sunshine began filtering through the hazy skies. I liked how it lit up the frosty trees.
This little bush is wearing a fuzzy white coating.
|Spiky frost crystals sparkle in the sun|
When the sun hit the frosty leaves, it was downright magical! White flakes glittered in the light.
|More interesting spiky frost|
The frost formed little needles of ice on these leaves. Very interesting to see.
|This rhodie looks like its growing hair!|
Almost looks like some of these leaves are growing white hairs!
|Even my doggie had frost on his ears|
Even my dog got a little bit of frost on his ears. He was such a good boy and actually posed for this shot (and he doesn't usually stand still for very long!)
This week our inversion ended, with a return of rain and warmer temps. I never thought I'd be so happy to see the rain, but I am. Rain in the valley means snow in the mountains....... :) And just maybe I'll see more frost up there next time I go skiing.
