Glowing Gorse…

Yesterday was an extra post because of the excitement of the snow ๐Ÿ˜› ย This morning saw one of the hardest frosts I have seen in years so I was out before sunrise to capture the magical ice crystals – I wasn’t disappointed ๐Ÿ™‚ This is a little Gorse bloom (considered a noxious weed here in Australia) with a wonderful covering of frost, backlit from the rising sun – click in for more detail.

      Thank you Robyn – I was thinking of you with the cold. The crystals are amazing, I have some other shots (you can imagine how many!) and they are actually hollow little tubes, like hexagonal straws ๐Ÿ™‚

        Its exciting isn’t it?! ..and perhaps addictive…lol
        Think you did so well, especially hand held.
        The ice IS spectacular and builds amazing little structures.. Love your description of the hollow straws. Fantastic stuff!

    Hot and cold, sharp and diffused, full-spectrum–great stuff, Lisa! Whatever it was that woke you before dawn, it worked very much in your worthy favor.

    Beautiful stuff, Lisa, those wonderful gorse yellows!!! And interesting that gorse should be considered noxious – its all around here as you know and I love it, but some years back I was on the Isle of Skye and, having just taken a hold, it was considered an invasive weed there too. Adrian
