Hoarfrost

I haven't really posted any photos from this harsh winter, other than my header photo, partly because the snow has been deeper than my boots are tall and partly because it's just been so cold that I haven't wanted to go out.
 
But Wednesday morning's hoarfrost drew me outside, in spite of our record-setting temperature of 15 below zero Fahrenheit (-26 C). A fog moved in and immediately froze on the trees, which, when the sun came out, created a sight just too compelling to ignore.

I hope you agree.

I'll be back with more Florida birds next time.

  4. Oh wow, the hoarfrost is really gorgeous on those trees! I've seen hoarfrost only a few times....just beautiful. We have seven inches of snow this morning, and while my boots are taller than that, I'm not looking forward to my trip to the barn to feed the chickens. Woe is me, lol.
    Stay warm!

  9. Oh my gosh...stunning! I love the contrast in colors. Looks like a winter wonderland. That is some wicked cold y'all have there. I would be afraid to take my camera out in it. I read somewhere that if it gets too cold and then brought into a warm house that condensation can damage the camera. :/

  18. -26°C? Brr, but what a photographer wouldn't do for a nice photo, right? :))
    I'm so glad you went out and captured the frozen trees, they look marvellous against the blue sky.

  19. The wintery pictures looked more beautiful in Harlan than I remember here. Probably the touch of the great photographer and of course our Lord's spectacular creation. Who can doubt the Hand of the living God and the wonders He created for us to enjoy?

    Psalm 8: - "3 - When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, 4 - what is man that you are mindful of him, the son of man that you care for him? 5 - You made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned Him with beauty and honor."

    Thank you for writing and being so mindful of this beauty. It takes your breath away when we love Him and meditate on His Word.
