Shadow Shots: Frosty


 These are the weedy remains of a flower bed, photographed at dawn. Only the uppermost leaves were illuminated, floating over a still pool of night shadows. The thick frost began to melt as soon as the sun touched it.

These look like frosted treats - the look of autumn that suggests cool mornings and warmer days. The beauty of this season but a harbinger of winter yet to arrive. I like Fall and wish this was the coldest it would get all year - in IN ant CT anyway...

Thanks for the graphic reminder that there are cold places in our world. The Sonoran Desert, where I live, is not one of them!

So much beauty! Even though the frost represents cold and sometimes damage to our plants, it is a work of art.
