The hoar frost was gorgeous yesterday morning, and I always kick myself when I leave my camera at home. I should know that it needs to be attached to me all day, because I always see picture opportunities and never have my camera. The land by my daughters preschool is bare, and yesterday there was a beautiful low sun shining through trees with beautiful hoar frost coatings on them…and no camera.
Not that I would know what to do with that kind of lighting anyways….one of these days I will actually start leaning my camera and stop breaking Becky’s heart that I have such an amazing little camera, capable of awesome pictures,yet use the Auto functions all the time 😉
However, the top picture came out beautifully, auto or not. The others aren’t as stunning since the sun hadn’t hit the front yet.
Frosted giant allium. I DO see now why people leave their plants for winter interest. They are beautiful when covered in frost
And my echinacea are simply spectacular winter interest in the front, I am glad I planted another.
I am in the throes of ignoring my spring fever, walking by the seeds and potting materials that the dang stores have already set out. Why must they tempt me?0
