Some more pictures of the wonderful frost we had at the weekend. Such beauty would inspire creativity so I thought I would post some references to Hoare Frost in literature as my note today. See previous posts for descriptions of Hoare Frost

"And in the morning, one will arise as fresh as a lark and look at the window, and see the fields overlaid with hoarfrost, and fine icicles hanging from the naked branches, and the pond covered over with ice as thin as paper, and a white steam rising from the surface, and birds flying overhead with cheerful cries".

Poor Folk by Dostoyevsky,

"The tradition is kept up here that you are the best of skaters," she said, with her little black-gloved hand brushing a grain of hoarfrost off her muff".

Anna Karenina by Tolstoy,

"The ground from the steps to the river was covered with snow and hoarfrost, the water of the river looked black and deep".

The Count of Monte Cristo by Dumas, Alexandre

Hi Karan

A lovely selection of photos nicely presented. I love seeing a hoare frost. We get them in the South Island of New Zealand so I am only fortunate to see one if I anm visiting there at the right time of the year and it is cold enough. :-)

Very nice captures and collage.Each frame is crisp clear and well detailed.I liked presentation and your note also a lot.

Hi Karan,
Beautiful macro work and collage again. The soft colors and light are wonderful. The frost really created some beautiful structures and you were able to catch them perfectly. Love the warm feeling of these photos eventhough it clear to see it was a cold morning. Love the note.

Hello Karan, these are a good selection of frosty images. I think I like the bottom left the best although the lighting on the top left is very good. Nice details and exposure. Well done.

"The tradition is kept up here that you are the best of skaters," she said, with her little black-gloved hand brushing a grain of hoarfrost off her muff" :-o !!!Ouch!!! :-) It was a mistake to spend her entire clothes allowance on one pair of gloves.
