I was happy the frost was so visible. 🙂 Cheers, Brenda LikeLike Reply I like the way you see in the photo ways to depict and characterize the frost. I like sparkles and worry about vipers! LikeLike Reply I think of frost as a viper that bites my veggies. LOL LikeLike Reply Hi Brenda – I can see the frost on the leaves in your photos. I tried to take a video today of snow crystals floating in the air. They looked like diamonds floating around in the sky. I don’t know that the video did justice to it, though. It looked more like snow instead of sparkly snow crystals catching the sun’s light. LikeLike Reply It’s hard to photograph ice crystals. I’ve tried to photograph the way frost sparkles when the sun comes up, but my pictures always come out flat and gray. Have you seen the ones taken with a microscope? They are fantastic. Sigh of pleasure. LikeLike Reply Sorry, Brenda, I didn’t reply sooner — playing catch-up with my emails. Ice crystals must be hard to photograph, at least, capture them with the color spectrum of the sun. I’m fairly new at it and it was my first try to get them on video. Your pictures here look pretty close, at least frosty. I’ve seen pictures of water crystals. It’s interesting especially under different environmental influences. LikeLike Reply I got some snow on video, and some leaves falling, but they are a bit choppy. If I have time, I’d like to do a new video for my award posting, but I fear I will run out of time. This time of year is so busy! LikeLike Reply A new video would be fun doing. The end of the year is inevitable and running out of time too. It’s all good whenever you shoot it, I’m sure. 🙂 LikeLike Reply I’ll see what I have time for. My daughter wants to watch the Grinch who stole Christmas now. 🙂 LikeLike 🙂 That’s definitely a priority. LikeLike Brenda, Wonderful pictures, fantastic Poem.

I live for the lightening to strike twice in the lost and lawless land… the will of the wind will deal its hand — I sing to understand… I sing to understand, and I have been so lost… I have been so lost… I have been so lost… Covered by the cold, bitten by the frost…” — Olly Knights, “Bitten By The Frost” LikeLike Reply Beautiful frosty leaves – I love the frosty leaves! 🙂 I must try and photograph some myself, this autumn. I suppose it requires early morning photography, I’m not much of an early morning bird, at least not when it comes to running around looking for pretty leaves to photograph anyway! 😀 LikeLike Reply I usually am out walking by 8 am. I walk my son to school, and then walk on to Starbucks with a friend. Even 8 can be too late for frost, but one morning, I managed. 🙂 LikeLike Reply We’ve got a bit of a warm up here today…fog instead of frost. Like the same line…frost vipers – a tad ominous – yet I think the fairies can tame them… 😉 LikeLike Reply We bundle up, and they can’t bit through. 😉 LikeLike Reply “Frost vipers circle…” oh you take my breath away, you really do! 🙂 🙂 LikeLike Reply 🙂 Thanks, what a nice thing to say!

I used to see leaves just has you have photographed. Thanks Brenda, for rekindling my memories because the stay was so beautiful. LikeLike Reply That’s a beautiful part of the world.
