We had our first real frost on the weekend and I headed out hoping to find some frosted seed heads but they were not really frosted at all. And for some reason the things that were quite frosted were not holding my attention. So I am back here. With the early morning dew, and just a touch of frost.

That first image in particular is breathtaking. 😉
Thank you, Cynthia.
Agree that the first is in particular breathtaking. And the straws (seeds) crossing with drops of water…
Hi Bente, thanks very much.
I just came in from the forest in the rain. While I was out there, your sublime images spurred me on to shoot a little more, walk a little farther. Now that I have dried off and have a cup of tea, it’s delightful to find a new post with more glorious images to wonder over.
I love walking in the rain, there is such a sense of peacefulness on a rainy day, like things slow down somehow.
Thanks for your kind words, Elena.
Karen, your compositions are so subtle and inventive. These look like they’re pushing against the dermis of another reality. Yes, breathtaking.
such a terrific comment, thank you!
I’m speechless…. what a poetical nicety!
Superb images! Very well done!
Thanks very much, Phil.
Your seed pod started to look like a figure, expressing the emotion to me.
That is interesting, Yoshizen. Emotion is good!
Thank you, Chillbrook.
I never tire of your ethereal images….
Oh that’s good, I’m glad about that! Thank you.
A great place for you to be back to. Great shots – I too favour the first and the two seed pictures. Wonderful.
Thank you, Ephem, I’m happy you think so.
Such splendid images, especially Thirst3 and Thirst12. The light, shadows, tones, and transparency of all of the images are so captivating. A wonderful series.
Hi Lemony, thank you. For some reason transparency is a word that seems to stick in my head when it comes to art-making in all forms.
Really wonderful images. Inspiring.
Thank you, Jennifer!
Très belle série !!
Je vous remercie beaucoup.
Dandelionseeds#2 great variation and the one under looks like you caught the seeds in flight – the way they float,
They were tenuously connected. Thank you, Carla.
These are beautiful, Karen. Those little droplets please my sense of something or other 🙂 I also love those fluffy seedheads. Nice.
Thank you, Trish. 🙂
Your magnificent images provide just enough clues to provide a setting, but you must fill in the rest of the story with your imagination… Lovely.
Let your imagination run wild…

Cold – I hadn’t really thought of that, but I suppose there is something to that…
Amazing images again Karen, especially the first. Would grace any wall. 🙂
Thanks kindly, David!
Love the way your eye sees!
poetic whispers, so lovely!
a beautiful poetical expression of seed heads!
Virgilio, thank you.
So fragile, delicate, and beautiful. I love the water droplet details. So soothing Karen 🙂
I like working with water droplets, Marina. A reason to love the rain! Thank you.
