Frost on Calico Pond

I hoped to have had more shots of plants and foliage covered in frost, but that didn't happen. I have a couple that I liked from this Saturday's trip. I'll have to go out and look for frost covered foliage to shoot.

The leaves below are from the same tree. It's amazing how turning just a little bit away from or toward the sun can have a huge impact on how the photos turn out.

Enjoy! I hope to have a couple more tomorrow to wrap up my trip to Calico Pond in Gee Brook State Forest.

Very nice shots, John! I love the first one. Looks like it's taken right out of a magazine. Nice muted colors with a powerful composition. And instead of getting irritated on the winter, I should be happy for the frost!

Zetson: Thank you! I was surprised to see the first one when I was going through my photos. I remember taking and trying to get a nice back-lit photo, but wasn't sure if it was going to come out nice. Thank you for your compliment. :)

I'm a bit excited about this time of year. I enjoy the fall colors and now that I have something useful to gain from the cold, I like that too (frosty pictures).

I'm glad to see you recovered from your tendinitis.
