When the temperature is -26 degrees, the places that I will point my camera for interesting photographs becomes much more limited. As our multiple days of subzero temperatures bottomed out, I found myself inside looking out, through the beautiful patterns of frost on one of the windows. Intricate and fascinating, it was back-lit by a neighbor’s light in the distance. I found myself going from one side of the window to the next looking for patterns that would show the detail. And when I stepped back to see the pattern in full, it reminded me of the delicateness of a green fern. Within a few days our temperatures moderated and the winter beauty on this window evaporated by the welcome sun.
Love the image!
I enjoy ferns and find them not as delicate. You captured the nature and it was the feeling of cold—which you had……..Mtn frost has some quality but not like this. Thankyou.
Thanks for your comment Joani. Glad you got the “cold” feeling; and you are right about mountain frost not being quite like this. But then your part of the world has so much more moisture than we do in the winter. The cold we had was very dry – no moisture content at all!
finding beauty – you have a fine purpose
Thanks Margaret – was much more enjoyable finding beauty while being inside (rather than outside in the cold). Glad you enjoyed it!
These type of images always captivate me!
