A morning with heavy frost is a cause for celebration to a photographer.

Frost transforms things into artwork. Leaves and flowers become intriguing designs as edges are rimmed with white and silver, and a shallow depth of field turns them into fairy-land of soft colors and muted tones. By throwing various elements in and out of focus, the resulting images always surprise and delight when viewed on a computer screen.

On window panes frost patterns are equally fascinating. I am blessed with an old house, with old windows – modern double-paned glass windows don’t cooperate in producing wintertime pieces of art. Ice crystals are a truly beautiful natural abstract and I love taking pictures of this sort of thing.

These photos speak for themselves … the beauty of nature, up close and personal.

  1. I usually think double-paned windows are a good thing– except on your house! How beautiful! Thanks for “taking one for the team” and NOT upgrading your windows to the world. We appreciate the view vicariously. πŸ™‚

  2. Gorgeous shots! Thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  3. What gorgeous photos. Truly beautiful. πŸ™‚

  4. Love your treatment of the frost. Excellent use of DOF!

  5. I love those red berries, as always. And the “ferns” of ice crystals on your windows are beautiful, but I hope you are warm enough!

  6. No fair ….We have not even had a frost out here yet! Or maybe I have not gotten out of bed early enough to catch one. Either way, YOU WIN (as usual). GREAT shots Paige, and your glass panes almost look like paintings. Very nice collection of a subtle art of Mother Nature. D

  7. Beautiful images, Paige. You put me to shame, I sleep too late 😦 ~ I’m almost as old as Dan!!! Kudos to you, I so enjoy seeing your new work. Best regards, Pat
