This is what I'm talkin' about

 Hoarfrost:
a grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor formed 
in clear still weather on vegetation, fences, etc.

This is what I'm talking about when I say Winter is just beautiful!!! 

Yesterday morning, I couldnt help myself, 
I grabbed my camera and set out to take some photo's of the area,
then later Rick and I continued to enjoy this beauty as we took a short road trip.

 
I think the best part is the dramatic white (as snow) against the vivid blue sky

I got out of my car for this close up

Just driving along...
 This photo really doesn't do this tree justice....believe me it was breathtaking!

Cant go on a road trip without a barn photo. 
Love this green roof!

  1. You capture the beauty of winter, Jackie! I wish my poor old decrepit joints could stand the brutal cold. Thanks for sharing your gift. Btw...I agree....a perfect blue sky is the loveliest of backdrops.

  3. Beautiful pictures, Jackie. Sometimes your pictures actually make me consider "liking winter". There really isn't anything more beautiful than a winter frost on s sunny blue sky winter day.

  7. We didn't have the intense blue skies and sunshine here to show off the hoarfrost. But clearly you did and you did a fantastic job of capturing the beauty. I know winter is your favorite season and that shows in your photos today.
