It was a white world again Saturday morning. I thought, "No, I've taken enough frost photos!" But looking out the window, I could tell it was a very different kind of frost from the spiky stuff I showed you last week. 

It was also very cold out, like about 8°F. I thought, "Okay, I'll take the camera along... and to avoid freezing my fingers off, I'll just take ONE photo, to show the difference in the frost."

You know me better than that, right? I can't take just ONE photo of something beautiful!!  So here y'are, folks... that white world. Click on any photo to enjoy it larger.

This frost was very light, flooffy, and delicate. It seemed to be layered in individual flakes.

Yet it was very thick.

Even the overhang of our roof was decorated with the flakey bits:

This icicle was also covered with it, and I thought it'd make a cool picture. Unfortunately my camera focused on the tree behind it instead (maybe because it was almost too bright out to see the monitor... or because my fingers were so numb I couldn't push the buttons correctly), but I thought it made for an interesting look, anyway:

My favorite photo of the day:

It sure was pretty for a couple hours on Sat. morning. Our white birch trees were wearing beautiful white fur coats. Love the pics.

Thanks, Grace!

I hear ya about the frozen fingers! I bought fishing gloves, they have bare finger tips that a fold over mitten like thing covers. I keep my hands covered and just slip out my index finger for focusing and shutter clicking!

Still gets cold and let's not think about how the toes start feeling after a bit too. We suffer for our art...

I do have some gloves like that, Jill, and they certainly help! But yeah, the fingertips still get cold. It's worth the suffering, though, isn't it? ;)
