It Was A Foggy Frosty Morning

 

This morning when I woke and looked out the window the land was covered in frost and fog . I made a cuppa tea and let Miggs out to do her business this was at 7am and  I got a whiff of the fresh crisp cold and damp air . Well  …you know what comes next … yup out I went with camera in hand , this time I got dressed and didn't take these photos whilst  in my jammies  lol  it was that bone chilling damp cold BRR !

                                                    Foggy and frosty a strange combination  but interesting !

                       The lighting out there was still  dusk again another  light versus dark challenge for my photography !

     The hush that was over the land  , was deafening as I could swear I could hear the frost crackling as the fog moved over it all .

                                    It was pretty and quiet yet eerie at the same time , beautiful really !

I hunted in the fog for things to photograph that were touched by the frost . It was all so weird as the fog was warmer then the frost and gradually started to melt the frost as it cloaked over it all !

                                   I was in awe of this strange happening between the fog and the frost !

Juniper trees/ bushes  are  so pretty when frost is upon them and lots of berries on them deep on the underside  to make them even prettier !

                I then spotted my wacky fungi that has taken over the old stump on our little hill in the front !

                                                               This fungi just keeps getting bigger and bigger !

And for ever changing and looks amazing with a touch of frost on it ! Looks like something out of the sea don't you think ?

                  This old stump never fails with the amount of fungi  that grows on it  with all it’s different shapes and sizes !.

As the morning went on the fog took over the frost and started to melt it as the temps also began to rise , I then saw Mr Cardinal and his buddies at the feeder having breakfast . I noticed the feeder was low so off I went to fill it up for them and the other feeders to .

              I think at this point he was looking at me as if to say ( hey lady we are low on food here) !!!!  Cheeky thing lol !

So off I went and did that and that is when Miggs and I  also went for our walk and no I left my camera at home  the moister was starting to fog up my lens  sometimes that happens when you get two different types of air at the same time and lots of moister !  They say it is to be sunny I hope so , it has been a few days since we have had sunshine . Looks like it is trying though,  cross my fingers and toes we see the sun !

                       I love to get out there and explore with my camera as I never know what nature has  to show me !

                                                                                 Until next time .

I too enjoy the dusk light, these days have been sleeping in however, have taken a few frost moving fog pictures as well. Your pictures are amazing, I love them especially the frosted grass. I use the Juniper berries after the ants have eaten the insides to make my Ghost Bead Necklaces, did you know? Amazing fungi, I can see why you keep going back to photo them. Check out my necklaces if you like, the story behind the making of the beads in the description is a wonder to many. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/Seaglassing

That is amazing fungi, and looks great with the frost on it. No frost here but certainly a dull and dreary day.

Beautiful photos...I can feel the crispness in the air!

I could almost hear what you were talking about in those first pictures. The pictures are beautiful! That fungi in the first picture looks like little stuffed velvet pillows and the fungi in the last picture, the bottom one, looks like a fat foot with fat toes.
