The Little Details

Many times we are guilty of passing by the little details, in order to see the large scale beauty. I am trying hard not to do that, but don’t always succeed. 


On this day, I did slow down and took note of the little details, and I'm sure glad I did.

The most delicate of weed stems, when coated in frost is a beautiful thing.


Each tiny finger of frost is so detailed and so pretty.



Yes, the trees in the background had some frost on them, but this time the lowly weeds stole the show.



This is much the same picture as the previous one, but zoomed in a little more.



Back at home, on the corner of my deck, the heated birdbath creates it's own atmosphere.A pine bough overhanging the water, is tinged with frost.



 What can I learn from these pictures? 

I believe the lesson may well be to slow down and take note of the details

  3. The frost certainly makes for interesting pictures...God's design in such intricate details. Who knew the frost could be so amazing? Looks like you get a lot of frost, more so than snow, where you live. Is that true? Or do you get an ample amount of each? Of course, here in Florida we get none of the above...maybe a frozen birdbath once in a while because we really don't need to have a heated one. But that's about it. Some frost on the ground occasionally. When it does freeze, we are in trouble with our citrus industry further south, which keeps moving further south because of it. Love your pictures. Thank you for sharing the beauty with us.

  14. It's one of the reasons I love photography! Taking a photograph is so much more than just snapping a shot. I'm always looking through that lens to see hat I can find that is unusual, beautiful, exciting, different. I don't succeed most of the time, but just the mere fact that I am looking. I know you feel the same way. God's beauty is everywhere.
