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!


  1. I love those lichen photos, Jeni! They look like mini worlds of their own! Can't wait to see the snow. xo Jennifer

  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! :)

    1. I do not envy you your snowfall Shirlee. Thanks for stopping by. :)
