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

  1. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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. 🙂

  6. 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.

  7. 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!
