9 thoughts on “Wordless Wednesday: Hoarfrost on Birches

  1. Gorgeous images! I have been utterly mesmerised by the hoar frosts, and have been rather camera happy. Even the Almondsbury Interchange looked beautiful this morning; that has to be a first! x

    1. “Almondsbury Interchange” and “beautiful” – no, sorry, does not compute! I am too scarred by my many commuting experiences there… I’ve been camera-happy too, even bought a new battery. This morning I reminded myself that sometimes it is good to just look with my eyes rather than through a lens, but it is so beautiful out there right now…

      1. Indeed I was rather surprised! It’s my least favourite road junction of all time (and the site of my only ever incident when a lorry blithely ripped off half the bumper of my old car when cutting across me!) – yet the trees were absolutely stunning this morning as the sun started to rise, it almost made up for the road itself… No camera today but think I will still try and take myself round the business park at lunchtime to admire with my eyes… not quite as scenic as our countryside though…

  2. Dear Janet – your photography is stunning. The hoarfrost* delineates the birchtree structure so beautifully. Happy WW

    (* had to check – formed when the trees were colder than the air temp!)

  3. White on white, very effective. Instead of red berries, green conifers and tawny grass seedheads as a foil for the white frosty stuff, your snow on white birches is really nice.

    1. Thank you Laurrie, I rather like the subtlety of it. And thanks for popping over!

  4. Hah! Almondsbury Interchange… I too have negotiated this one in my time. The company I work for has offices nearby. At present I am working at Elstree near Borehamwood, Herts, and I had to travel around the M25 yesterday. It was much more picturesque than usual — the whole countryside was white, not with snow, but with hoar frost. I wish I had had my camera with me, and that it had been possible to stop and record the views.
