Uncharted Territory



A cold front has moved down from Alaska bringing us some early frost.  I set out to take some photos one morning, although it was only 30 degrees.  A down coat and wool gloves were in order.

As is usually the case with camera in hand, I forget all time and temperature, and an hour had passed before I realized I could no longer feel my fingers!


I couldn't decide which I liked better, color, or black and white, of the frosty rhododendrons.



I spent a long while crawling around the base of old stumps shooting these little guys.  I believe they are called Cladonia carneola, a lichen, only reaching about an inch in height! 




The frost made for some delightful light play, whether I used color or black and white.

Rain returns tomorrow, so it was fun while it lasted.  Perhaps some snow pictures will be in order next month!

  2. The little lichens have a Dr. Suess quality about them. It's hard to imagine how tiny they are by the picture.
    We've had two big snowfalls so far and hit -31C the other night Now a chinook has blown in and the melting and slush begins.
    Have a wonderful day! :)
