Muted Colours in the Frost

It's cold out there but beautiful in the frost! Colinton Dell looks very wintry

and the bridges are covered in thick frost


which glitters beautifully in the low sunlight.

Most colours are muted and the occasional berries, like these rosehips shine out particularly brightly

The puffball fungi look very old now, but if you look carefully you can see they still have some spores left inside, waiting to be released when some animal bumps into the fungi!  

A kingfisher dashed up the river and disappeared into an overhanging bush,  then a few minutes later dashed across the river and disappeared again! A lovely spot of colour on the wintry river.

it's almost furry looking, that frost! We had a hard one last night, I know this well from being out doing astronomy. Luckily I had rum to help.

I always like the way the weather, and light, plays an important part in photographs.

The frost here somehow makes it more magical ...

All the best Jan

Pretty "frosting". ...we didn't get any this year as Oregon was just rainy until we left for Florida. They got their first ice a few days after we flew out!
