A Taste Of Winter

Hoar frost on the trees, against a blue sky.

 

Just before Christmas I did a couple of posts on a frosty, foggy, late November day in the Castle Park in Castlederg.  On the same day, I was on a couple of roads leading north out of the town, rising as they did, on to higher ground.  At a certain point, the fog stopped on the sides of the valley, and it was possible to move a few metres downhill back into thick fog, or a few metres uphill and be under blue skies, with hoar frost shining in the sun.  There was a great variety of shots to be had by moving just a little in either direction these are a few of the first ones processed from a happy couple of hours.

  1. What a wonderful morning. All the photographs are lovely but the one with the hawthorn leaves, the ice puddle patterns, and the lonely tree, stand out as extra special for me.
