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.

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 🙂

Glowing Gorse…

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.

Crystal Forest..

Another shot taken in the heavy frost last week.  This is the top of a round timber fence post, again taken at sunrise…I liked the way the light caught the little needles of ice making this beautiful crystal forest 🙂
