Jack's Gift

 

Still no snow here where we live but at least Jack Frost had a Play Date with Mother Nature!

It is fabulous, Ginnie.

We are shivering in 13deg temperature here...that is about as cold as has ever been recorded in The Village...
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Ray, but it sounds like you've grabbed some of what is supposed to be ours...! We're still waiting for a proper winter here!
Oh how beautiful, Ginnie! I'm sure the East Coast would be happy to spare you some snow! smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. I would LOVE for them to share some of their white stuff!
Simply wonderful and delicate Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.

I guess you were very happy with the frost, Ginnie, to have produced this
Ginnie Hart: I was a very happy camper that day, Lisl. It's not the same thing as snow but it'll do in the meantime.

This is wonderful. I love how it shows that the frost grows on the edges of the leaves. Great shot smileLove the DOF.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. There should be an entire course on Jack Frost because I bet there would be many attendees!

Very nice indeed Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
We are back to wet and mild with another great load of rain on the way.
Ginnie Hart: Yup. It's already 45 F right now. (sigh)
Oh I forgot to say. Lovely picture
Ginnie Hart: Most kind of you, Bill. Thanks.

La feuille est très bien décorée
JP
Ginnie Hart: They certainly have their act together, JP. smile
He he.. Jack is a bit old-fashioned these days.
Kids know Elsa and Anna better.
But you can be Anna, she's got red hair too! wink
Ginnie Hart: LOL, LC. I obviously need to get my education. grin
jolies ces feuilles givrées! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: If we can't get snow, frost will have to do, JP!
Frosty leaves make me think of late fall. Sure hope you get some snow.
Ginnie Hart: Frosty leaves make me think of the snow we ALMOST had, Mary. (sigh) As Astrid says, we're not past the possibility of snow yet....

Beautiful composition of the frozen leaf !!! of very beautiful crystals - Have a Good week, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pat. If we can't yet have snow, Jack Frost will do!
I think that the snow was all delivered To one area Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I agree, Chad. Too bad it can't be divvied out to everyone who wants it!
A nice capture, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Frank.

So pretty smile Jack hasn't paid us a visit yet...
Ginnie Hart: Just for a few days last week, Cherry...and now we're back to the mid-high 40s F! (sigh) BUT...Astrid says sometimes winter comes here in February or March, so maybe there's still time?

Hairy business. One can see the individual ice crystals.
Ginnie Hart: Amazing craftsmanship, Louis!
That is gorgeous.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Michael. Jack thanks you.
It's just so interesting to see how the frost accumulates on the edges...so delicate and beautiful!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Robin. I'm sure someone can explain the physics behind it but in the meantime, we'll just go ga-ga over that Jack!
This is superb... you can't go wrong with frost...
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Larry, and I so agree.

GINNIE! This is beautiful. Did you use a macro lens to get that sharpness?
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Emily. I did use the Macro option (not on the knob) on my PowerShot magic camera, and then tweaked it in PhotoShop to get the sharpness. I'm hoping I don't have to get out my big-girl camera with macro lens...but I may decide to do so one of these days, just to see the difference. In the meantime, I'm really trying to work the PowerShot to its max.
I'm hoping we'll escape snow all together this winter, Ginnie!
Ginnie Hart: Oh, Tom. At least give us a week's worth...PLEASE????
