FTLComm - Tisdale - Monday, January 24, 2005
Though the leaves of spring and the showers of autumn are very pleasant and the colours of fall can make us smile for the day they appear, the day before the wind blows them away, frost has to be the "glamour" of mother nature.

The fagility of frost its silent arrival and miraculous disappearance suggest that frost is the jewelry that add sparkle and mystery to the down right ordinary.

The magic of light is best appreciated in winter with the deep blue shadows on the morning snow and the crisp white highlights on twigs and pine needles,

These last three images were taken early Tuesday morning between Archerwell and Naicam. The damp atmosphere had been caught by the temperature dipping to dew point below the freezing mark which produces these decorations.

With the brilliant heat of the sun at this time of the year the wind is not needed to make these sparkles disappear as only those in deep shade would survive until mid morning.

A few more storms to go and spring will be here.
