Down to the wire…

Hello everyone, I trust all is well 🙂  The image I am posting is from last weekend when we had temperatures down to -5C.  I am always astounded by the beauty of the formation of ice crystals and so this image is of hoar frost on barbed wire.  I also discovered this week that when you try and catch up on the reader, WordPress will actually prevent you from liking when you respond to ‘too many’ posts so apologies to those I have not ‘liked’, but I have seen and appreciated them all 🙂  Click in for a more detailed image.

A dam at dawn…

I took this image on my way to work this morning – very cold (-1C) and watched the colour unfold as I was driving.  I saw this dam with the wonderful reflections of the (very large) lambs against the increasing fog and warm pre-sunrise light – I had to stop and get out with the camera 🙂

Black ice?!!

Another image taken from the exceptionally hard frost last Sunday and my entry for the 23rd Monochrome Madness Challenge –  a frozen blackberry stem…The challenge initiated by Laura Macky (wishing her well) and Leanne Cole (curator) is a weekly smorgasbord of monochrome images from photographers all over the world and published Wednesday mornings (AEST) on Leanne’s blog 🙂
