FOTO FRIDAY...OOPS IT's MONDAY!

I captured icicles Sunday morning and a few tree branches with frozen fog on them. The frozen fog was not nearly as pretty as a few weeks ago. We are supposed to have fog several times this week with early temperatures below freezing so maybe I'll be able to capture better fog photos.

An early physician's appointment Monday morning may afford a similar opportunity. My little travel Canon camera is already anxiously waiting me in my SUV. It is a very good substitute for my Nikon, which I would not dare leave unattended in any car. Only disadvantage is I have no polarizer for the Canon which is secret to the deep blue skies which I tend to overdo---I love them so.

[Not a picture to get excited about unless you see the two captured drops from two icicles. I would have rather it been some other photo, but I've tried for years to capture dripping icicles!]

5. Awaiting Spring - Variety of Pest Controls "Cooling" in the Snow


6. Fog Frozen on Trees

[Note ice shards on horizontal branches + trees appear budding with frozen fog on nubs which will be new growth in spring.]

I can see the drops and I'm totally impressed with your icicle photos. I thought you lived in the south---is this weather normal for you?

Hi! Glad to see that you are making through the Ozark winter with your camera in hand. I love the icicle photos, but I especially love the last photo of the tree covered in ice. Buds are hearty, that's for sure. It is such a nice reminder of the promise of spring. I'm ready for it!!

If you don't have snow, all pictures of snow are lovely.

OH my goodness just when I thought I had finally warmed up I come over here...hahahaha
You really know how to capture a picture and make a person feel like their right there with it.
Gosh I would freeze where you are. I am nearly frozen and I am south.
Girlfriend don't you ever worry your pretty head about leaving a long comment on my site. Look what I am doing to yours. lol
Don't worry I am watching those bytes like I do for fleas on Tinkerbell. If I even get close this time I am selling my computer.
Love
Maggie

I have seen enough ice already. Though it is mostly gone here now. I don't think our icicles were as photogenic as your icicles are.

I'm cold just looking at these. Good ones.

You certainly have the icicles
down to an art. Thanks for sharing
those... we don't see many icicles
in North Central Florida...

Those icicles are lethal weapons. Great capture.
I was finally able to dig myself out of being snow bound and made it to Walmart. There I ran into several friends who didn't need to buy anything either but were just fighting cabin fever.
Hope we get some frozen fog here. Pretty.

The frozen fog was not as pretty as that I saw with the first snow in our area about two weeks before this last storm.

The sun burned though the fog earlier like about 9 a.m. instead of 11 a.m. The temperature rose above freezing before the sun broke through this time.

The previous scene was very widespread, too.

I cannot describe the beauty the first time. All poor debilitated trees from last year's horrific ice storm were glistened like a beautiful Christmas cards, plus flecks of frozen fog were in the air glistening like silver. An incredible scene, and me, on the way to church, without my trusty Canon in the car.

Everyone at our buffet after church was talking about the incredible beautiful trees.

A lot of natural events have to come together at the right time for this kind of event, like dense fog, below freezing temps. and the sun breaking through at the right time--nothing we can control,only Mother Nature.

And a more alert photographer with camera in tow!
