It's Getting Colder
The last real winter with lots of snow I experienced was more than 20 years ago...
But the last few days showed a slight drop in temperature - just below zero - at night.
With frosty results!
Luckily the early mornings were sunny and without wind.
Perfect opportunity to go outside and take pics.
Always a bit tricky as my fingers get cold very quickly, but somehow I captured quite a few chilly scenes.
Whether nature or man-made objects, frost turns them into objects of beauty.
This for instance is a log of wood partly covered with ice crystals, the morning sun made them disappear soon afterwards.
Frozen drops on a spider web.
That's where a part of the web started.
All kinds of white leaves.
Part of a wooden bridge.
No idea how this happened, but I guess a little bit of water was caught by wind and froze on the spot.
A small frozen puddle with some oak leaves.
This silhouette came out well I think.
Frozen drops underneath a rain gutter.
Part of a metal fence.
A hedge in bright sunlight.
A car's rooftop.
Some plants still show seeds...
The frost nicely 'frames' those leaves.
A frosted over twig with all kinds of growths.
On top of another car...
Frosty fields of Loosdrecht!
A brown leaf hedge.
The combination of bright sunlight and frost was excellent!
A frost covered garden hose.
Top part of an outside wood stove.
It looks a bit like a frozen flower...
This little fellow is a permanent resident of my parents' tiny pond...
After spending all that time in the cold outside I needed a stiff drink!
