“Winter Forest”

On a very very cold winters walk not too long ago, I ventured out towards the woods. The trees and everything else I could see, was covered in gorgeous glistening Rime Ice. Well, I say Rime Ice because it didn’t seem to meet the conditions for Hoar Frost. If you think you can tell the difference, feel free to leave me a note!

The sun had only been up for a short while when I first went out, but by the time I reached this location it had been out for a while. Still low enough though to capture the beauty of the sunlight on the branches. There were some pretty nice long shadows on the snow also.

I came away with totally frozen fingers despite wearing gloves, but it sure was lovely! We’ve had so many dreary winter days so far this winter. Today happened to be one of them, but on this day here, the sun was shining brightly with pure blue skies.
At least for a couple of hours or so till the clouds moved it! 😉

Beautiful sunlight on frosty trees.

Sunlight through frosty trees and long shadows on the snow! I decided to go monochrome on both of these images. I think it works well here. How about you?

    1. Thanks so much Len! How did you guys do with this recent winter storm on the East Coast? I hope you didn’t get stranded indoors for too long! 🙂

      1. Thanks for your concern Rachel. We headed to Florida the day before the storm and will be here until mid-February. Got out of Dodge just in time.

  1. LOVE these shots Rachel!! Just wonderful! Monochromatic processing is totally the way to go with these as it accents the intense cold feel coming off our screens from these great shots!!
