Scenic Sunday: Frozen Trees



Taken on December 21st, and one of our coldest days on record at minus 13 degrees below. Naturally I didn't stay out long, however, not only were the trees covered in ice and snow but they were also covered in hoar frost. I am surprised they are still living after this winter.

I think it looks very pretty. Hoar frost is beautiful, especially close up. ;)

Great catches. It always amazes me how the trees and plants can go through so much ice and cold and still come back beautifully.

@ EG Wow:I did a few macro shots on the trees in our front garden, they were all bent over from the weight of the ice. I think its very pretty too, especially with the white against that blue sky, but I am glad its all gone now.

@John: Thanks, that's very kind of you to say that:D

@Lorac: I know, its so cold and frost tends to kill everything, but these will be thriving in a few months time. So its amazing that they survive such temperatures.
