January Frost

The weather has been quite a bit cooler over the past few weeks. Snow has threatened but not materialized for the valley floor. Temperature has dipped into the low 20’s F at night.  Saturday morning we woke to a white frosty landscape thanks to a thick blanket of fog. I couldn’t resist pulling on warm clothes and taking a few shots in the back yard.

Closer look at rusting frosty metal. I really love the colors.

  1. We’ve been enjoying the gorgeous frost on our way up to Millersburg for derby practice! Moby’s gray makes him looks a little frosty too! Great photos!

    1. Thanks Ella! I must say I certainly missed all the blue sky above during our 2 weeks of fog. Or was it longer? Started feeling the need to curl up in a cave and hibernate. 🙂

  2. Great pictures! I especially like the closeup of the blackberry leaves. To say the Moby looked unimpressed was something of an understatement, I think! 😀
