One of those Frosty Mornings

Ok, you know I really don't like Illinois winter weather... being a Southern California girl..... but when I see some of the phenomenons that only winter can bring... I'm left speechless!

This morning we had a blanket of frost that is so stunning! Here's a couple shots.....







It was a bit breezy and these aren't as focused as I would like, I may try to get out to capture some more. 

Enjoy!
Shari

Your photos are awesome examples of why I love winter so much! Fall is my favorite, but I must admit, of all the seasons, it is winter that inspires the most wonder and awe in me, causing me to marvel at the sheer natural beauty that surrounds us.

I think these pics you took are truly remarkable!

Shari! I still remember when you took a video of 'throwing out the water' and letting it freeze!

It was that cold...

Beauty can be found in all the fine details, even in places where we usually rush by.....so lovely in their simplicity!

Great shots. I love it when weather gives us presents like this.
We had a real winter too. Lots of snow and ice. Now the snow is gone and I'm in the garden to see if my bulbs are already coming up. I'm ready for spring.

Amazing photos!! But I agree, I love summer and don`t need winter. It`s ok for Christmas, but as soon as this is over I wish winter would be over, too...
