Yesterday was an extra post because of the excitement of the snow 😛 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 🙂 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.

Beautiful! What a wonderful world is captured by your skill.
Thank you Steve 🙂
You go girl… Thats fantastic!
We’ve had the snow and frost too.
Its been cold but fun.
Look at those amazing crystals!!
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 🙂
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!
Great photo and capture Lisa 😀
No frost here again today… Its been a strange winter.
Amazing image…Discovering new worlds through are lenses, isn’t that wonderful?
Thank you and for taking time to comment. Yes, it is very exciting 🙂
wonderful photo. With what kind of camera/lense did you do this photo?
Thank you, this one was a Nikon D600 and Nikon 105mm macro.
Very nicely done.
Just fabulous against those yellow petals!
Thanks Sarah, glad you liked it – worth the cold!
Totally worth it! We didn’t really get any frosts last winter here. I was sooooo disappointed. I love a really cold, icy winter 🙂
Fantastic capture Lisa – weed or not, it makes for a wonderful image.
Thank you, the yellow in the sunlight was amazing 🙂
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.
Thanks Gary, a planned mission, got up normal work day time but on a Sunday – glad I did 🙂
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
Thanks Adrian. I like too but it is a nightmare for farmers once it gets into the paddocks.
a crystal wonderland!!!
