Frosted

The last day of November was gloriously cold:

A frosted universe presented itself –

Frosty flowers that looked like stars floating in the cosmos;

Frosty flowers 1 copy

Small ice crystals in the shape of

Trees on the postbox lock;

Frosted lock

A storm passed through

And left frozen waves in its wake;

frosted waves

A bird hiding out in the icy reeds

Sang a morning song;

bird

And yes, even a rubbish bin

Transformed into something greater than itself

In the frosted sun.

Bin

    Usually the flowers are always beautiful but those frozen flowers are more beautiful yet.
    Undoubtedly, the first pictures are spectacular.

  21. Perfect frosting fotos! I really like that first one but also that you took shots of some rather ordinary items that turned into extraordinary frost shots.

    December 2, 2013 at 19:02

  23. Absolutely breathtaking! I love the frosty flowers particularly.

    I see they were taken on Andersdag, so if the old saying of “Om Anders braskar, julen slaskar” is true, we might not get a white Christmas.

    December 2, 2013 at 19:40

  24. LOVE that first shot!!!

    December 2, 2013 at 20:04

  25. Wow! That first photo took my breath away! They are all stunning, but the first one really did it for me!

    December 2, 2013 at 21:35

  32. Chilly with the blessing of light – your frosty morning is a celebration of shape and texture. Nature transforms even ordinary objects into works of art.

    December 2, 2013 at 21:36

  33. Läckert! Vi har som tur inte haft så mycket frost ännu, bara lättare.

    December 2, 2013 at 22:23

  35. I like the pictures of the frost you showed. Not it is only time before the real winter sets in.

    December 3, 2013 at 03:08

  39. You make winter beautiful!

    December 3, 2013 at 04:46

  41. Beautiful photos of the frost – that’s something that I will never see here in the tropics.

    December 3, 2013 at 07:42

  42. Wow! What a great photo series!

    December 3, 2013 at 08:46

  43. Loving the frost flowers. So far this year we haven’t had much frost which is a shame because it makes for good photos.

    December 3, 2013 at 08:54

  44. Just gorgeous…especially the frosted flowers and who would have thought that there is beauty in a rubbish container!

    December 3, 2013 at 09:54

  45. Another fascinating post, ladyfi! “Stars floating in the cosmos” is a poetic analogy. To me, the frosted flowers look like angels’ pinwheels.

  48. Guess what? I am listening to Walking in the Air. What a coincidence. Perfect soundtrack for your pictures.

    Greetings from London.

    December 3, 2013 at 11:16

  50. Great shots – the trees on the lock are great – I get to see frost outside my door 3 or 4 times a year!!

  51. Beautiful shots! I always love to see some snow!

    December 3, 2013 at 11:53

  52. having only seen snow once in my life, I am amazed by the patterns the ice crystals make. The sunlight through the trees in your image of the trees and lake is so beautiful. Have a wonderful week, and thank you for stopping by my blog today.

    December 3, 2013 at 13:40

  53. What an artist you are: In both words and pictures!

    The first flowers look like they are coated in sugar.
    Have a wonderful day.

    December 3, 2013 at 19:59

  58. Love the frosty photos! The cold that comes with them, not so much. We are having a very wintery week in the northern US.

    December 3, 2013 at 20:09

    Lovely photos! I’m really looking forward to being in England in a few days time again. I miss the little birds and the frost on the fields. Last Christmas was absolutely magical in Oxfordshire and I think this Christmas might be the same. :)

    December 4, 2013 at 01:28

    • Hope you get a good winter then. I live in Sweden, so we’re almost guaranteed snow at some time!

  71. the frost on the flowers is beautiful!

    December 4, 2013 at 17:23

  72. Such fragile beauty. I just stumbled upon these photos whilst listening to Tori Amos’ Christmas album, ‘Midwinter Graces’, and felt that the magical mood of the album was perfectly suited to this visual enchantment.

    December 4, 2013 at 20:57

  73. such beautiful photos, they inspired sounds of joy

    December 4, 2013 at 22:08

    December 5, 2013 at 05:01

  78. Stunning frost shots! Our frosty mornings have turned to a full blown winter wonderland in northern Minnesota. We’re amidst a 3 day snow storm that so far has covered us in about 2 feet of snow!

    December 5, 2013 at 06:06

  79. Frost fingers gave beauty to everything :-)

    December 5, 2013 at 07:51

  80. A little wonderland all around you… I wish I could wake up to that sometimes… I wouldn’t be able to put my camera down….Beautiful pics!

    December 5, 2013 at 10:11

  81. Frosten kan være virkelig vakker … bare så synd all kulden som følger med! Jeg liker ikke når det blir kaldere enn 5 minus, og det er vanskelig å unngå selv her i Drammen :)

    Ha en fin helg!
