Frosty January Morning

We have been fairy fortunate with mild temperatures all the way up to New Years. January 1st was one of our first really cold days. This morning is also a really Frosty January Morning with temperatures in the low 20’s. There is a heavy frost, the hummingbird feeders froze and the cats came back in after only five minutes. On the other hand I got some beautiful frosty pictures.  They aren’t as nice as I had hoped, because a bank of freezing fog moved in very quickly as I was taking pictures, and before long the wonderful morning light was obscured.

Freezing Fog BankThe beginning of the fog bank is coming my way.

 

Freezing Fog DescendedOnce descended, the fog engulfed everything.  The roofs are very frosty, and will become even more frosty.

Frozen Hummingbird FeederThe hummingbird feeder is frosted, and soon I will need to change the nectar again when it, too, becomes frozen.

    1. Hi Nell Jean,

      Thanks for coming by. We do get snow, but haven’t had any that has stuck this year. It is now almost 2 pm here, and the temperature has not climbed out of the 30’s. At least now it is sunny. Hope that you have a great week.

    1. Hi Debra,

      Thanks and thanks for stopping by. It was pretty cold going out and snapping those images, but I liked the shots I got. I would love to have a macro lens to get up closer.

      Thanks and thanks or stopping. The frost has been pretty this week, but it is getting warmer, so we will probably have rin in no time. Hope that you have a great week.
