    • I do too. I’ve never seen it just rim the leaves like that.

    • Well, you live in a great place though because you can fairly easily drive to the cold country when you want to see it.

  3. The frost looks really blue in the first picture. Did you do something to achieve that? They’re a great series of frost shots.

    • Thanks Maggie. I did use an EV of -1.0 and maybe that created the hint of blue. I used a back-up camera and was wishing that I had my regular one with me instead. The frost was beautiful that day!

      Thanks for the visit!

    • Me too. I was surprised to see the green one. The ground has been frozen there for quite awhile.

    • I know you would have a lot of fun with frost and ice crystals! Maybe not their environment though.

    • It really does! We haven’t yet had those days of freezing fog that decorate everything, but there was a little in the area where we hunted that really made some of the trees pretty.
