Frosty Winter Delight

Frosty Morning

When I looked out of the window this morning all I could was a frozen Narnia of frosted branches and white, freezing mists and fog.

It’s that strange in-between time where the days are so short and lacking any clear routine; the days meld together inspiring possibilities for great creation, making, baking, crafting, reading…or just sleeping.

When I ventured out with my camera everything was frozen and still and silent.

The birds were chirping away in the hedge and in the trees, keeping their distance, until this proud Mr Robin hopped over to investigate. Isn’t it strange how you never see robins in the summer?

All the seasons are an inspiration in their own way, but winter’s frosty delight and the delicate crystals of ice are so precious, fleeting and beautiful.

    These photos are really beautiful. Great capture of the robin and the crystallised frost with the sun shining through. The freezing fog that day was quite creepy! Almost like if you stepped outside you would disappear into it and never be seen again…

      Thanks Vikki. I just had to get out and take those shots, though it was rather strange and eerie to wake up to and it didn’t really lift all day. The weather really is a source of inspiration sometimes as well as a conversation-starter with strangers! x
