Frozen solid

Last Saterday I woke up and looked outside, the night before we have had heavy fog and that by a temperature of -10 C ( 14 F), the sky was now clear and full of stars, I was outside before sunrise,  it just was a fairytale outside, after 3 hours I was frozen solid but it was worth every second. This is NO SNOW just FROST in thick layers on the branches

De wit gekleurde bomen en het gras aan de rechte kant, verlicht door de zon, stralen steeds meer en meer, lichter en klaarlichter, terwijl de bomen op de achtergrond bleken nog in de mist te liggen. De blauwe toning -in verschillende nuances-verduidelijkt de kou, en ik kan wel jou navoelen hoe koud het was op deze morgen, zelf de huisjes lijken zich te bukken onder de ijzige koude. Een erg mooie panorama-beeld!
Picturit: Ontzettend bedankt Philine voor je lieve reactie, zoals jij het beschrijft was het ook echt die ochtend, koud..heel koud, maar die koude verbleekte bij het zien van zoveel moois wat de natuur gemaakt had, nog steeds kan ik genieten van de beelden van die ochtend, zeldzaam zo mooi en niet vaak vertoond, Philine nogmaals bedankt en een prettige dag.

Another great frost shot Astrid. I've never seen so much frost smile
Picturit: This frost is rare even for us, we do have some every winter but the combination of heavy fog, deep freeze weather is maybe once in the 5 or 6 years, thanks Michelle as always smile
We call this hoar frost. When the sun sparkles off it it is one of the most beautiful things that can ever be seen. That is a really beautiful photo, Astrid.
Picturit: You are so right here Mary, this is so rare, so unique, I was so glad I was able to witness the most beautiful site of nature I think....thanks as always Mary.

I know where the expression `picture perfect` comes from! It comes from beautiful photographs like this. What an absolute treat! (:o)
