This morning, in the bright cold sunshine, was a nice quiet opportunity to take a few pictures whilst the frost was still present and the sun had not melted it. So, here are some pictures, taken on the cusp of Februarys arrival. The warm sun and clear blue skies have been very welcome of late, even if it isn’t quite warm enough to dispell the crisp air. The colours outside at the moment are all pale shades of green, blue and brown, as if the colours are waking back up from the winter snows and have not reached their full depth of brilliance. Despite the recent frosts, there are already some signs that Spring is on the way.
I really love the patterns that the frost makes on things- it seems to be so chaotic, but be based somehow on what the object is. Which, now that I’ve written it out, doesn’t make any sense whatsoever, so I hope you know what I mean – as opposed to what I’ve typed…
Some leaves still have not fallen since last Autumn.
I like the colours in this one, the blue green of the grass in the background, compared to the pale tan of the clumps of grass further back.
The pale pink Cherry blosoms appear to be unaffected by last nights frosts, and some are just beginning to bloom.
Something we found which was wholly unexpected. I look down, searching for more frosty photographic subjects and I see this: which to my frost addled brain, bears a striking, if not quite absolute, resemblance to the triple moon symbol 🙂
And something else wholly unexpected, but in a different way…
