Frost

 

A couple of weeks ago I headed out on a very cold morning to photograph my favorite meadow at Longwood Gardens.  The water was frozen over, the air was so crisp it was a wonder birds could fly through the chill.

But nature has a way of simply going on despite the weather and decided that was my fate as well… to explore all that was in this seemingly frozen tundra.

And what I found along the way was that nature also has a way bringing every last moment of each weather effect into a beauty all its own, whether it be in the ever emerging ice patterns evolving into delectable designs…

or the lovely crystalline frost affixed to each blade of grass.

And as I began to zoom in I found the joy of each individual iced display.

It’s times like this I wish I had an even closer lens : )

At least I could get close enough enjoy the little worlds hiding within the vast frosted meadow.

And there was an endless supply of frost to photograph!

It was gently perched on grasses everywhere.

And atop would be florets.

It glistened from afar and begged for a closer look.

And a closer look could always be found.

And just when I thought there was no more ways to see it, there was yet more.

It may be a long Winter ahead, but I quite sure I’ll be able to find some more frosty fun throughout.

And one more great thing about nature is that you don’t need to drive to a meadow to find it.  Its already in your back yard : )

‘Til Tomorrow…
