039: #362 windows

Frost flowers on my window just after sunrise
(3 below zero - I hope this is the last of the low temps)
I used the EFS 60 mm lens hand-held even though it doesn't have image stabilization -- and leaned on the window frame to steady myself.

  1. Beautiful! I like the lacy, delicate look of the frost. I can't even imagine how cold 3 below must feel.

  2. Great job, it came out beautiful. I had these lacy frosty things on my windshield this morning and wanted to shoot them, but I was in a hurry! It was 20 here! Sounds warm compared to -3.

  4. 3 below is unbelievable. I hadn't, actually, touched enough snow to make a snowball until this winter. Anything about the cold fascinates me. Love it!!

  5. Beautiful!! I remembre these kinds of days growing up in Maine. We had an old (over 150 yrs) house so didn't have heat upstairs in the bedrooms. I remember frost on both sides of the bedroom windows. Not this pretty though. LOL

  13. This is lovely! This only proves that sometimes you need to just stop what you're doing and look around you. You never know what you might be missing!
