Diamonds All Around

It's winter in southern Manitoba and therefore the scenes are snowy and frosty.

Don't get me wrong, snow and frost can be very beautiful. I have been able to get out and capture a few of these scenes, so that is what I will share.

On this particular day, the frost was not all that heavy, but the weeds in the ditches were sparling like the brightest diamonds. A photo just does not capture that special beauty.


As the sun hit these frosty trees, they glowed and sparkled.



I am always amazed at how a simple tree, one I would likely not even notice in summer, looks like a work of art.



Sometimes, it may be a full tree, but often it is a few small twigs that showcase the frosty beauty.

If I were an artist, I might try to paint this scene, but now I will allow the camera to capture the beauty.



Just one last look at the frost covered weeds. I was in awe at the simple beauty I had the privilege to capture.



 Think About This:

We can still be thankful for the life we have, even if it looks different than we want it to.

  2. Not sure if I told you that Florida had frost about a week ago it only lasted about 30 minutes but we did have Frost but nothing like you're gorgeous Frost. Every time I see beauty like this beauty that you have showed us here I wish that I could paint

  4. Thank you for venturing out and getting these gorgeous pictures. We have similar scenes here this morning, but I don't think I'm ready to venture out. It's down-right frigid here.

  12. Hi Ruth, I loved your comment ... "I am always amazed at how a simple tree, one I would likely not even notice in summer, looks like a work of art." It reminded me that I need to pay more attention to nature. When I look out my window now I see several trees without leaves. They all look perfect in their own way. Enjoying nature brings peace and joy to me. Thank you for sharing your photos. John

  17. I am not sure if that is hoar frost or rime ice, but it is very magical. We haven't had this kind of tree frost so far this winter in our part of Ontario.
