Frosty moments

Frost temporarily preserves
The landscape in fine sugar dust:
A lustful feast.

Crusted tufts of wind whipped grasses
And rusted busts of proud seedpods,

image

Languish in a spangled frozen sea.
On rough textured tracks, puddles
Like mystical misted mirrors,
Creak and crack as sunshine
Seeps through apricot pillows
And weeping trees.

The dogs and I thoroughly enjoyed our frosty world of spangled surprises, apricot skies and mystical mirrors which creaked as we walked through our local countryside in rural Bedfordshire. Captured in every breath and every step this temporarily preserved moment was truly magical. Enjoy.

Frosty fruity Friday


Frosty Friday
It has been a beautiful frosty day. This morning the tangled fruit bushes and hedgerows looked delicious with their tempting iced crusted leaves and frosted berries. I knew this uniquely magical moment would change so quickly, as the sun melted the frost into droplets tinkling as they rolled from one leaf to another; so I captured the essences holding my breath, not wanting to disturb the moment. My dogs, being used to many a heavy frost when we were living in Edinburgh, rolled about and played, their paws skating on iced puddles.

Ice dance


Ice dance

Ice fairies

Flaunting glamorous feather boas.

Dancing on tip toes,

Timorously pirouetting

On ice crusted brambles,

Sledging zealously

Down frosty

Branches.

Golden frosty morning


 

 

 

Golden frosty morning

 

Golden frost,

Buttery crisp,

Ponies bathing

In a buttercup halo

As January

Sunshine soothes.

 

This view was such a magical delight to come across when I was walking my dogs near the heath.  I stopped to soak up the golden rays and the chill to my face, as I worked the camera at the same time holding on to the dogs! I hope you enjoy my post.
