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!

I could not agree with you more...those photos are spendid and the cotrast between the blue and white are remarkable! What a feast for the eyes and I'm wondering; is hoarfrost a real word or did you make that up? I've never heard of such a thing and the word is clever so I wondered...

Oh my! That is so beautiful. So often here we have fog with front, not blue sky. The contrast is amazing.

Those photos are breath-takingly beautiful. Especially the ones of the branches against the blue sky.

OH.....A "hoar" frost! I always wondered what that was...Obviously, we don't get them over here. Nice pics Joan!

I seldom see that on the trees here. They are beautiful with that frost on them, especially against a clear blue sky like that!!
