A Cold And Frosty Morning

Appropriately enough for the time of year (in the northern hemisphere, at any rate), Cee’s Fun ‘Foto’ Challenge theme this week is ‘cold’.

After the temperature dips overnight in the absence of any cloud cover, the bay leaves on our laurel bushes are tipped with frost.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Place

As Frank himself notes, after last week’s theme of ‘Time’ the only logical choice for this week is ‘Place’. Accordingly, he invites us to share an image of a favourite place (or places).

Well, they do say there’s no place like home, and I doubt that I’ll be the only one putting up a picture of their own place in response to this challenge.

No apologies though, because I don’t think that this is the worst view out of a back door you could ever find. We have two fields on the other side of that wall and these frost-laden trees form part of the boundary between them.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Season

This week’s Tuesday Photo Challenge, as set by Frank at Dutch Goes The Photo!, is ‘Season’ and, as he points out, that can mean more than one thing.

In terms of weather, a sure sign of the changing of the seasons is the first frost of the year – it might still officially be autumn but there can no longer be any doubt that winter is on its way.

We had our first frost of the year a good few weeks ago, which produced some interesting, almost abstract, images in our herb bed – so there’s the other meaning of ‘season’.

Tuesday Photo Challenge: Woods

Not quite constituting a wood in itself, this line of trees divides the two fields that lie behind our house. On a clear, bright sunny morning after a very cold clear night earlier this year, the frost on the bare branches was too good to miss.

52 Weeks Photo Challenge: Week 23 – Trees

On a clear and frosty morning, the sun shines through the line of oak trees that borders one of our fields.

WPC: ‘It’s Not This Time of Year Without…Frost’

We’ve had a couple of frosty days over the past few weeks. So that’ll be November then:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Time of Year

Tuesdays of Texture: Frost

One of the few things that have thrived through this summer’s drought has been the grass known as Queen Anne’s Lace. Late last year, however, I took this photograph of frost on one of the characteristic seedheads. I like the contrast between the detail on the nearer stem and the out-of-focus blur of the one behind it.
