A Frosty Nature Photoshoot

Hello friends!

This January has been unseasonably warm so I haven’t seen snow yet, but we have gotten a few morning frosts. I actually took these photos last month and have been waiting to share them. I had a lot of fun wandering around my parent’s farm and spotting little gems just waiting to be captured by a camera.

Enjoy this pretty, chilly photoshoot!

I didn’t know there were any dandelions left, but this little guy was still holding on. I love the warm yellow contrasting with the frosty blue in this picture.

I know I’ve taken hundreds of pictures of grass blades sparkling with dew or frost, but every time… I just can’t resist. Does all that shimmery bokeh make you happy too?

Dull wintry tones in this one. Look at the delicate but straight lines of this leaf’s veins. I love stopping to observe nature’s details.

Some of the frost crystals almost looked like snowflakes. I could pretend at least. πŸ™‚

A gift fallen from the oak tree in front of Dad’s machine shop.

Ah I love this one! It looks like a close-up moss shot. See the tiny, frozen droplets on the end of each grass blade?

Ooh, don’t these leaves look strange? I think the moisture froze onto the fuzzy hairs coating these leaves to create this cactus-like effect.

Clover looks striking rimmed in frost. I searched long and hard for a four-leaf clover since I’m usually pretty good at finding them, but to no avail. This guy is still nice though.

The most interesting frost-covered thing I found was this oak leaf holding an insect gall. I’ve always been fascinated by the unexpectedness and perfect roundness of galls.

There’s the little hole the inhabitant made when it escaped. Kinda gross if you think too hard about it I guess, but I focus on how interesting they are instead, haha.

More pretty contrasts with warm sunlight and cool frost.

We’ll end with a couple of non-nature-related frost pictures. The fuel tanks by the shop were coated in frost too.

One thing frost can do that snow can’t is preserve the exact shape of tiny details like this arrow indentation. I thought it looked kinda neat.

That’s it for today’s contribution! I hope you guys found those frosty bits of nature as intriguing and pretty as I did. If you just think I get excited over strange things that’s okay too. πŸ˜›

Which picture was your favorite?

Thanks so much for reading, my friends, and have a lovely day!
