Needless to say, January gives me the blues and leaves me longing for Spring. This week after my little family got over our annual January bought of sickness, I decided to go in search for the beauty of winter.
Our extremely cold temperatures and inversion have caused there to be fog several times this week. One morning I noticed that the fog covered the trees with the most beautiful ice crystals. So I dashed outside and started taking pictures.
The ice crystals were so delicate and beautiful! They were breathtaking.
As the sun started to burn away the fog, I knew that my moment of beauty would not last long. So I kept snapping away.
I even managed to get close enough with my compact macro lens to get some individual ice cystals! So beautiful! Look closely, can you see the it?
I have to admit that on the two days that I took pictures of the frosted trees, I took over 200 pictures. I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites because I loved them all so much!
I guess I learned my lesson. Winter can be beautiful. You just have to be observant and look for the quiet beauty of the season. You can't stay home in your cozy den, you have to get out there and find it.
I do highly recommend wearing a pair of gloves, especially when your temperatures are below freezing! Brrr!
