Frost and Traces

Traces of this morning’s delicate frost fading on the window as the day starts to warm (above) and the frost before it starts to fade away.

 

I have made several hundred photographs of frost on this window over the years, some of which are posted  here , but I hadn’t really noticed the traces that are left behind as it disappears.

After the (Freezing) Rain

Tiny icicles on the brink of melting away.

Mosaic patterns forming on the flora as the ice crowns begin to surrender to the warmth of the sun.

Moving under Trees

Moving under trees dressed for autumn – leaves at dusk lit by streetlight.

I think I’ll attempt this technique again as the composition (or something) in these images is lacking but I sort of dig this not-so-subtle colour combination.

Birds Falling like Leaves off Trees

Starlings at Dusk 2 (GIF)

The first real snow came yesterday and in late afternoon a large flock of starlings were braving the wet snow and wind, grazing the tops of trees and  falling like leaves from branches.

(I hope the GIF isn’t too annoying, it would be nice to be able to click on it and make it stop! Oh well…)

Through the Raindrops

Looking through the windshield on a rainy afternoon …

I made some photographs outside of the car, too, but it was this view through  wavering raindrops that truly caught my eye.
