Photography: No frost but…

Posted by on December 14, 2011 at 7:48 am.

Yesterday morning, I noticed our outside world was blanketed with frost. It was breathtaking, and I paused for a few moments to soak in its beauty.

In my mind I thought about the photos I’d take after I dropped my daughter off at school. Upon my return home, I became sidetracked with a variety of household chores, and so by the time I did venture outside the frost was gone.

I did console myself by taking a picture of the Autumn Clematis you see above. This is how it looks during it’s dormant season. I actually prefer this over it’s flowering stage. It’s gorgeous! Additionally I snapped a shot of the rose you see below.

Mr. Bentley, our Shih Tzu, eagerly joined me on my outside adventure. While I was snapping photos, Mr. B was marking his territory on various objects throughout our yard.

I didn’t manage to get the photos of frost, but there will be other days to capture those pictures. I still was happy with some of the pictures I managed to take.

I don’t need photos to remind me how beautiful the world where I live is, however having them makes it easier to share portions of my world with others.

    The poor rose…but never mind. Come Spring it will bloom again in all its glory. Reminds me of the song, “The Rose” by Bette Midler.

    Hello @suituapui, You’re right it will be back, more beautiful than ever. We still have a few roses hanging on even though the weather has been chilly. Even though they aren’t as beautiful as they are in the warmer months, I’ll be sad to see them go.

    Those pictures look great: you captured some very rich textures. I wouldn’t worry about the frost. These photos have a delicacy all their own.

    Thanks @ashok,
    My favorite is the first, it reminds me of dandelions gone to seed. As a child, when I’d see one I’d snap it up and blow the seeds all over the yard. I didn’t know that it was an edible weed, until I was an adult. These days I pick them and use them in a variety of dishes.
