SOOC Saturday - Hoar Frost Wonderland

We awoke this morning to a Hoar Frost Wonderland. The thickest hoar frost I have witnessed in person transformed the landscape into a surreal white world. At 7:15, I was outside taking pictures in the foggy air, starting within the confines of our property, but quickly moving to my neighbors' yards. [I think by now, they all know me to be the crazy neighbor with the camera]

Who knew weeping willow branches could look so ethereal?
Coated Tendrils Float in the Air

And once the sun came out, I was outside again for round two:
Covered Leaves

Prairie Grasses

Now that it is almost 2pm, the icy glitter is gone, burned off by the sun. But it was beautiful while it lasted.

All today's pictures are straight out of the camera, as I am joining Melody at Slurping Life this SOOC Saturday.

you have captured such unique perspectives on hoar frost. My winter wonderland has lots of hoar frost but I never thought to capture them like you have. Enjoyable!
Happy Valentines to you!

The weeping willow is my favorite. Perhaps because there is something immensely romantic about a weeping willow. And one with ice? Even more surreal.

Those are all so beautiful. The blue sky in the leaf one just about took my breath away!
