A Morning Frost

The sun's rays were just beginning to penetrate through the trees this morning when I took a walk and enjoyed and photographed the beauty of the first frost of the season . . .

A leaf from our Sweetgum Tree edged in frost

The sun's rays lighting up the brilliantly colored leaves of the Tulip Poplar and Oak trees

At one point a small flock of Canada Geese flew by . . . how I love their call! This time of year the numbers of geese seen and heard increases quite a bit . . .


The Oregano

"Praise the LORD! For it is good to sing praises to our God . . . He gives snow like wool; He scatters frost like ashes."
Psalm 147:1 and 16

  1. The oregano looks like it is some sort of sugar coated candy.

  3. The detail in the first picture is so neat Sarah!
    We too have been seeing and hearing more geese lately. The were a bunch of them in a field neighboring Bull Run last weekend, and as I walked up to the mailbox yesterday evening, I could hear their honking nearby! I love to hear and to watch them as well!

  5. I had wondered if you all had had a freeze down where you live, Joy. Yes, it does seem to be the end of gardening season (though our carrots and beets look like they made it through the frosts which is nice! :) Winter is on its way!

  6. That is wonderful that you have had the opportunity to enjoy the geese so much this fall, too, Ashley! Do you ever have any geese at Bull Run? Pretty much the only geese we see from our place are those flying over as there are not many places for them to land right around where we live. Though, every once in awhile there will be a flock land in the pasture bordering us . . . it is always fun to watch them!

  7. Sarah,
    What beautiful pictures! They certainly display the artwork of God! I never looked up close at the plants after we got a frost, but maybe I will next time - you have inspired me!

  11. We have had a few light frosts so far, but no really heavy ones. Frosts always makes things look so pretty, don't they?

  13. You know Sarah, you have a good eye for photography! I really like these pictures!
    How much have you learned? What kind of camera do you have?

    Hugs!

  14. Thank you, Ashley! I am trying to learn more about photography as I do enjoy it!

    Most of what I have learned has just been from experience . . . learning how to use the camera settings has been a great help as well as learning (or trying to learn!) how to 'frame' a photo.

    My camera is a Canon EOS Rebel XT, the lens is a Canon Zoom EF 28-105mm. I love this camera! :)
