Photo Challenge 16 – Morning


January 16th 2013
Prompt – Morning
List of prompts I’m working from this month 🙂
I think today must have been the coldest day of the winter so far. We had a very mild Christmas and New Year and I think this is the first proper frost I’ve seen, and what a frost it was!
I’ve got a post with some more photos showing the wonderful frosty spikes that have covered everything in the garden.

    I've seen so many photographs of beautiful frost in gardens but despite the snow we've had, it completely eludes us. That's a fabulous photograph, the clarity on the crystals is fabulous.

    Thanks for linking up

    Ohh lovely and frosty but is actually reminding me of doc who when all the statues came to life when you weren't looking at them! that doesn't happen does it?!…

      Not to my knowledge and it best not either because those statue episodes are the only ones that really scared me!! lol

    Loving the spikes especially the one on her eye.

      The more I look at it, the more it seems like she's in a frosty prison and the spikes are slowly going to make their way over her whole body!

    Those frosty spikes definitely add character to that statue!

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 11:06 am

      I agree, I was *almost* sad when the snow covered the frost spikes!

    Wow! I have never seen anything like that before. Too close to the sea where I am.

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 10:22 am

      I'd love to live near the sea. Hopefully one day 🙂

    That looks so sweet and slightly eery at the same time …as if she's been left on her own for a bit. Lovely shot!

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 10:21 am

      Thanks; she's my favourite fairy in the garden but I agree, she does have an eerie look about her!

  10. Joanne Blunt 19th January 2013 at 11:27 pm

    That is a brilliant photo.

  11. nlwmum 19th January 2013 at 11:24 pm

    That is such a great picture you can almost feel the cold coming off it makes me want to wrap up just looking at it 🙂

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 10:15 am

      I love photos that evoke feelings like that so it's truly a compliment, thank you 🙂

  12. Jenny Paulin 19th January 2013 at 11:14 pm

    what a briliant capture. i love the shreds of frost you can see here x

  13. mumsmoments 19th January 2013 at 10:49 pm

    unusual photo, love the icey spikes!

  14. mummyslittle peeps 19th January 2013 at 10:00 pm

    What a great capture, really shows the cold!

  15. Pippa Ainsworth 19th January 2013 at 9:27 pm

    That is such a striking image! The frost looks incredible. I've been after a great frost shot but we just don't seem to get it thick enough here.

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 10:11 am

      We don't usually get it that thick here. I'm trying not think of the plants that might be getting damaged by it because it's just so pretty!

  16. Nicola Thomas 19th January 2013 at 8:19 pm

    Wow that is an impressive photo! It certainly has been chilly this week.

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 10:01 am

      Thanks 🙂 We don't usually put the heating on here, we just put more clothes on but this week we've had it on everyday!

  17. OneDad3Girls 19th January 2013 at 8:19 pm

    ooo I love the spikes they create a very unusual sight

    1. shelllouise 20th January 2013 at 10:01 am

      I can't remember seeing frost quite like this before. I was out there for ages taking photos!

Don't be shy, come and talk to me! :o)
