30/365

Bold
Bold, something that make a large statement.
What did I see when I looked out m backyard this morning?  I saw what looked like popcorn all over the trees.
Heavy blankets of nightly fog have left the trees and everything else covered.  The patterns are amazing, one frost crystal added to another.
The air is so clear and crisp you can see for miles and miles. 

Natures way of flocking trees.


Bold, delicate ice crystals.


Cattle behind the house.  They really stand out against all the white.


All were taken with my 85 macro.  It's amazing what this little lens is capable of.
No post processing on any of the above photos, just re-sized for web.

These snow crystal photos are spectacular, Barb. I admire you for embracing the winter so wholeheartedly!

Wonderful crystal clear series of shots, the only thing that lens can't do is make the cattle look happy, better you than me though!

All of these are spectacular...my favorite is the very first image...those tiny ice crystals against that brilliant blue sky says BOLD all over it! l loved your description of popcorn on the trees, that really is what it looks like...now I'm just waiting for them all to POP off! Beautiful work Barb!

The crystals are amazing! I hope to get a shot like that someday. The tree blanketed with snow is a perfect Christmas card! Your shots have such serenity in them.

Oh I want a lens like yours!!!! What wonderful shots. Thank you for sharing these as I have never seen anything like them before. I love the pine tree. It looks as if it should have Christmas decorations on it!

ACK!!! I love them...my fave is the crystal with the blue background (last ice image)
Why am I wishing for colder weather now?

In all my years of living in the north, I have never seen anything like that. From a distance, they look like apple blossoms.

Beautiful shots! Th world is so beautiful when it is snow covered. I love how the snows just covers the tree limbs. My favorite is the#5, the crystals. You did your macro proud with that one.
