Blue Sky and branches of Hoarfrost!
Overnight one night, we had a slight hoarfrost.
I love it when that happens.
It covers all the bare vegetation
with frost that looks like it has been sprinkled by powdered sugar.
Here, if it is a sunny morning you have to hurry to get out to capture
it before the sun melts it all off the trees and bushes.
So, one day when I woke up a little later than usual, I saw it...
and rushed to get out there to capture some of it for you...
This particular time, it was like a mix of hoarfrost and ice on the branches, making them shimmer and sparkle:
I was Ooooo-ing and Awwww-ing the whole time out there:
It positively illuminated the day!:
I loved it against the clouds and blue, blue, sky:
Nature shining at its best:
Closeup and personal:
I have more pictures for you on a future blogpost...
I was out there
enjoying the scenes so much
that my fingers began looking like the branches above!
