frost here, fog there

this morning we woke up to a coating of frost on everything


I was out with my camera as soon as there was enough daylight


and then after the early morning drop offs at school and the bus stop
I went out to the valley to see the fog


fog gives everything a softness


and what little color there is
is laid gently against a canvas of mist


in my home
there has been lots of thankfulness these last five days
and now this particular mom is thankful for the return of our regular routine

(exclamation point)

Your photos are fabulous!! And, boy was I happy to have the routine back again today, and now it's time to pick them up. Already?!

your images are exquisite - I too was up early with the fog and frost - but instead I saw the moon in all its gauzy glory...and me with no camera!

Wow gorgeous Kimmie, what is it about that frost that is soooooo appealing and with the fog too it looks surreal. xox

My boys have not been in school for six days, and tomorrow I will report my own exclamations!

Those photos are beautiful -- strangely, we've had quite a bit of fog around here although no frost.

The frost photos look like pieces of velvet! I love it~~ I love to be out early on a foggy morning, too. Very soft, like nature has a secret to tell.

Very clever....

Such beautiful photos ! We are sweltering here at the moment, so these gorgeous photos of frost and cool, fresh mist are a welcome relief. I do love a good fog, I'm such a winter girl. Stay warm. xx

So beautiful. The barn and horses one is something I'd love on the wall.

I apologize that I've not been to visit lately. I finally poked my head out of my basement studio for a short visit.

I've always contended that fog is one of the hardest things to recreate on film. Real film, even. I even tried once using my sick camera, with very limited success. Your fog shows perfectly. I'm super impressed with your camera skills AND your photographic ability. Way to go!!

Teri said...

I am in LOVE with these images you have taken in the fog. Will they be offered on your ETSY spot? I hope everything is OK. We, too, have had some crazy weeks with Bill being in the hospital. He is mending nicely.
