Winter’s first sparkle…


There is something almost electric about the first frost of the season… you look out and all you can say is… wow… I had forgotten about this magic! Overnight, it was as if fairies from childhood tapped their wands on everything living and gave the world a spectacular lustre… a glow that beckoned me to bundle up and venture out with camera in hand. And, truly, I was rewarded. This was one of my favorite shots, where it appears as though these scarlet leaves have been dipped and sugar-coated, in preparation for the day. This is one of those times when you realize there is a wonderful world waiting to be photographed, all just a few yards from the back door. Welcome Winter! Hope you enjoy…

    Beautiful shot! Love the bright red in contrast to the background. I took some photos of some daisies with frost, but of course over here it was months ago. If you’re interested, check out the post, “A Kiss of Winter” on my blog.
