Guest photographer Maryann Nielson captured this beautiful scene at Riverfront Park on a recent frosty morning. Thanks, Maryann!
When I was out a few mornings ago to get some frost images, I spotted this leaf with not only frost but also some broken up ice on it. The leaf was stuck to the ground, and I knew if I tried to pick it up, it would tear.
My version of a frosty leaf is nowhere near as pretty as guest photographer Maryann Nielson’s version I posted recently. She nailed that one.
I decided to go outside yesterday to see if I could capture some frost with my camera, because capturing it with my hands would be a bit pointless (it melts, you see). The above image is a crop of a larger macro shot I took of some frost on blades of grass. I was surprised at how much detail I caught, since it was handheld and I was wobbling as I knelt down to take the photo. Click on the photo to see it larger.
I’m still trying to find trees with autumn-colored leaves, but the trees just aren’t cooperating yet. This big tree in the Neitling Park section of Pioneer Park is starting to turn, so here’s a wee bit of autumn.
It’s going to be raining for the rest of the week, apparently, so my autumn leave hunt will likely be on hold until the weather clears.
