Today was a work day, and it was truly amazing. It was foggy, but just below freezing, so the fog was forming frost on every small twig (and more).
First, a couple of long shots to give you a sense of the magic. I took too many pictures, and even so didn't stop to get the creamsicle color of the weeping willows or the pink of the red osier dogwood. (I would have to start subtracting work time if I made many picture stops).
This one looks creamier, if you know what I mean.
It was hard to choose just a few photos. I'm a complete sucker for frosty evergreens. I can never seem to get enough of them.
Even the dead branches become interesting when coated in white.
I am really sorry to say that I wasn't paying any attention to what kind of tree this is, so that will be a puzzle for another day, but I love the frost stars on the buds.
Can you believe that even spiderwebs were transformed?
And, sorry, just one more. I just love the shape of this maple against the sky, and the frost softens it so it looks like it's in bud, ready to erupt in white leaves.
Off to work in a bit. Hope it will be a fast stuffer run.
