Here’s another photo from guest photographer Maryann Nielson from a recent frosty morning at Riverfront Park (be sure to check out yesterday’s image, too). 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.
Guest photographer John Brandt took this pretty photo of the poetically-named Stayton Ditch on a cold, frosty day last month. Thanks, John!
Can you stand one more photo from the great January Hoarfrostfest? I haven’t been feeling well, so I haven’t gone out to take photos. Well, I take that back. I went out two nights ago to take pictures of the sunset, but my camera’s battery was dead, so I didn’t get very far.
This was taken from the pedestrian bridge off of Florence St.
I discovered I had overlooked a frost photo from the big hoar frost we had last month. This one is by guest photographer Terri Jo Adams. Thanks, Terri Jo!
I have some more frost images I took I haven’t posted… if I run out of other things, I might be posting those here and there. We’ll see out it goes.
We have a new guest photographer today! Tom Miller sent in this gorgeous photo of a frost-covered tree taken in the Pleasant Valley area. Thank you, Tom!
Be sure to visit Tom’s site, Oregon Fotos, for more of his photography.
