Winter Wonderland

I know the title of this post is over-used, but there are no other words to describe the beauty we have had in southern Manitoba recently.
I woke up Saturday to a world covered with hoar frost. I knew that I needed to get out there to capture some of that beauty. When a friend called to ask if I wanted to out with her,I did not have to think twice.
What follows are a few of the photos I got, more will follow in future posts.

It was still foggy, but that seemed to just add to the beauty.


These trees looked amazing in their white frosty dress.


Did I mention that it was still very foggy? Visibility was not very far, but I enjoyed being out there.


There were a few key places I wanted to check out and one of them was this railroad track. 


The frost changes the look of these trees, but I think it makes them even prettier.


With the foggy skies this picture is almost tone on tone.,

I hope you enjoyed taking a drive with me and my friend on this foggy, frosty day.By the way, the temperatures were quite pleasant, so that was good.

To Think About:
There is so much beauty in the world, but you must allow yourself to see it.

  1. You have always excelled at snapping different kinds of frost, and this is no exception! And the fog just adds to the beauty. They are almost luminescent. I especially like the one tree that is almost totally obscured by fog. But my very favorite is the first one. It could win any prize in any contest!

  2. All these frosty/foggy pictures are wonderful, Ruth! Since we rarely get hoar frost, I will look forward to seeing more like these from you!
