Frosted skies

It’s cold and deliciously wintery now.

But a couple of weeks ago,

When it seemed as if winter would never arrive,

Frosted skies

The promise of winter hung in

The frosted sky

Painting hopes and lake

With glorious tones of gold.

  34. What a beautiful moment you have captured here. The colours are almost unbelievable as from a different and strange world. For me the first one of the photo is the better. It’s a more untraditional composition and the shore on the other side is more interesting as is the fog clustering there. And of course the trails of air plane as well as the clouds enhances the feeling of serenity.
