The art of nature

Another bright morning, but this time the air was bitingly cold and the ground crunched underfoot. A sharp drop in temperatures overnight had caused a blanket of frost to emerge.

Aside from birds, frost is certainly one of my favourite things to photograph. I find it fascinating hunting the undergrowth for the different shapes and textures formed by the freezing crystals of ice. Tiny pieces of artwork created by mother nature. Just perfect.

The sun had only recently risen over the horizon, casting a warming golden glow from above. This ‘golden hour’ creates ideal conditions for photography and for once, I was glad I had gotten up early!

This unfortunate slug could not escape the chill either, encased and stuck to the ground by it’s frozen coating of slime.
