Yes, that's what I was humming this morning when I looked outside.
(The view off our back porch, looking north. The creek isn't really that green, just a trick of the light.)
The snow is from a few days ago, but until this afternoon it hadn't warmed up enough to melt it. And most beautifully, the window panes that are part of the deck's railings had frosted all over.
I got out my olloclip macro lens for my iPhone and captured a few pictures.
This one is from yesterday morning, when we were enjoying a two and a half hour delay for school resuming from Christmas break. Our roads weren't that icy, but the northern hillside was so the school gave us one final gift of sleeping in:
I just love looking at frost close up. It's so pretty. Makes me think that maybe I should print some of these off and display them during the cold post-Christmas months.
That one looks like a little frosty person, doesn't it?
This one is my favorite:
Makes me think of a little dancer, skating along our window.
Whenever I'm out photographing frost or snow, I always think of Wilson Bentley, famously known (by some people) as Snowflake Bentley. He captured some amazing photographs of snowflakes, and I even got to visit the Bentley exhibit in Jericho, Vermont. I was there in 2005 visiting Ty and Sarah before they moved back here. If you are ever in the area of Burlington, Vermont, then I highly recommend making the drive out to Jericho. I have one of Bentley's snowflake photographs, the children's book about him, and a snowflake necklace. You'd think I was a big snowflake fan, but I'm actually only a little bit of a fan. I like looking at snow, but I don't prefer to be in it for more than a couple days.
Anyway, our snow is pretty much all gone now, but it was pretty for a few days, and I suspect we'll have more frosted window panes this winter season.
My camera will be ready.
