Jack Frost was here







Picture this....
Wednesday morning.  Temperature -6C.  Heavy frost.  Rosy sunrise.  Fog.  Pam taking photos dressed in a toque, ski jacket, hunter orange vest and gloves to keep her warm while taking pictures.  I'm sure passersby on their way to work were wondering who the 'hunter' was walking around the yard and along the road with a camera instead of a rifle.  {sorry, no selfie}

Well, you gotta get out there before the sun really shines and melts the beauty away folks.


The frost tinged everything in sight.  Every blade of grass, leaf, left over bloom and spider web.  It was stunning.








Even the deer were out enjoying their breakfast unperturbed at the "hunter" shooting in the yard.  A while later they really needed to be worried about the real hunter in the big white truck though.  
And, I could hear rifles going off in the valley.  Tis the season.

My favourite place to take pictures was quite foggy before the sun broke through.

The "hunter" went in the house to warm up for about 10 minutes waiting for the sun to break through the clouds before she went out to get more photos.   Brrr.  It was cold out there!




This is one of my favourite spots to take photos in any season.  It's just a stone's throw away (if you have a good arm!) and across the road.  It was gorgeous as the fog was lifting.


Even the fence posts got a touch of frost.





Today it's raining, windy and very mild with this big storm system that is affecting the central and eastern half of the continent.  At least it's not snow at this point.

We had a very quiet Halloween last night with just 3 kids at the door.  And, now we have a few treats left over.   :)

The calendar has turned a new page to November.   The weather will change and the beautiful colours of October are gone.  It's brown and beige on the ground and grey in the sky month.  Old Man Winter will soon come knocking even though it's not winter for almost 2 more months.

I'm going to a Christmas Craft Market today.  It's an annual one that is held the first weekend of November and December.  Time to start some Christmas shopping.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you all have a great day!

Blessings,

Pamela

  2. Lovely frosted photos Pam. I see a notecard from a few of these, especially the first one. We had @ 12 kids and then at 8:30 two high school boys showed up at the door, no costumes but holding pillowcases. I told them they were good sports to come at the end and save us from eating the candy left over and gave them the rest.

  3. It sure makes the November landscape glow...I really like the pattern it followed on the top of the fence post. The color of those deep burgundy or magenta or whatever leaves frosted looks exquisite and rather Christmasy. Enjoy that candy. Warm rain? It is not a warm rain here. I'm bundled up like crazy as John is taking me out for breakfast! Enjoy the candy!

  4. I think we (your fellow bloggers) would understand being out early shooting away dressed as you were. We go to great lengths for the cause, don't we? :)
    I also think the deer would prefer seeing you rather than some of the other "shooters".
    Your frosty photos are all very pretty. I never realized a fence post could look so lovely.
    Have a nice weekend.

  6. I really like your frosty photos, Pamela and can see why you like the fence area for beautiful shots. I can almost shiver as I look at these pictures.

  7. Pamela, beautiful shots, these are my favorite mornings, well worth the cold toes, and fingers just to have a chance to capture this beauty.

    In regards to your question, yes Phil the pheasant is hanging around, but we don't see his hens very often.

    Have a great time at the fair.

  8. That's a heavy frost! We woke up to a gentle rain but our temps are in the 60s. Love the cobweb and the tree stump. It would be nice to see the crystals on the tree stump under a magnifying glass! How beautiful! Hope you find some goodies at the craft market today. That will be such fun!

  10. Frost is so magical. I am glad you bundled up and fired away for our viewing pleasure ( which in my case is while still snug abed.)
    We have had snow at our house three times already. Fall dropped like a rock after high winds before the snow on Tuesday ripped a the trees bare. The brown and white part of autumn has a quiet beauty too.

  12. Hi Pamela,

    Have a wonderful day!!

  13. Gorgeous frost photos. You obviously had a heavier frost than we did "in town". It's much warmer today but I'm sure the warm temps will be short-lived....

  23. I am loving these frost photos today. Just beautiful! And I didn't even have to bundle up to see it, LOL. Have fun at the craft market today. We're going to one in a couple of weeks, and we look forward to it every year.

  25. Beautiful pictures, once again. I love the colours in the sky in that first pic. I like the way the frost makes the fence posts and leaves look furry.

  26. Marvelous pictures! I love the frost. Reminds me of when there was so much frost on our farmhouse windows years ago.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh, that is frosty! It does melt fast when that sun comes up, doesn't it. I've been there, done that with all the clothes myself. I have gloves that the fore finger and thumb fold back for using the camera. There are fishing gloves that also do that. They work pretty well.

  29. Christmas shopping and at a Craft Fair has to be a favourite of mine. Speaking of favourites, that was a crispy one and your pictures are amazing as always, but there is something about frost and dew that makes a photo come alive. You did a great job as a hunter shooting all those shots for us while we are sitting warm, without mitts, drinking our coffee enjoying the pics without even getting cold, thank you

  30. Frost? Already? No matter, I'd be there in a snowy second to feel the Canadian cold, especially when it forms frosty sketches on Mother Nature's canvas! So pretty!

    PS: Love the frosted fence pole; at first I thought it was the cross section of a tree trunk!;)

  31. These are beautiful! Heavy frost does make things look so different. Like rain and snow, it has its own unique look. Very nice shots!
