Sugar Frost

Winter's definitely coming! We woke up to our first heavy frost on 11/18 with temps in the upper 20s and low 30s.  The early morning sun shining on the ice crystals made them look like they were dusted with sugar.

And this one is my personal fave.


  1. Wow, too cool! (Ha! "cool!")

    Those don't even look real - which is a compliment... so perfect!

    I still think you should become a professional photographer; you have such a wonderful 'eye' for things :0)

  3. So strange to see these images and have my window open right now and be wearing a t-shirt! We are in the mid-sixties today and tomorrow. Crazy ass weather!

  4. I don't miss it! :D Although beautiful from a distance.

  5. Frickin stupid botophucket. I have to fix that one picture! lol Thanks all!

  6. How magical these photos are! JoJo I love are so good. You are right, it almost doesn't look real. Great job at capturing this.

  7. Dang, JoJo, those look good enough to EAT!!!

    PS: Tracy and I need you to make us some ceramic wreaths of garlic. We know you're busy, we don't mind waiting. ;-) (See her comment on my blog post today.)

  8. Your photos are spectacular, and they do look like they were dusted with sugar!!
