Finding beauty in the cold. I bundled up and took my camera out for a walk but the fresh window frost seemed to hold the most intrigue. It is lovely too, along the river’s edge where the water moves so fast that the cold can’t hold it still. It seems like a good time to make soup!

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.
