Friday is for Photos - Frosty January Morning

Frosty January Morning or A Bunch of Limbs with a Fence
(Click on the image to see a higher resolution picture)


I went out and shot this picture last Saturday morning. I've been by this spot before with snow, and even with a thicker frost. I think this time I got there just a little late and was hoping the sun would have been just a little lower. This picture is a hard call for me. When I first looked at it, all I saw was a dark fence and a bunch of tree limbs. But the more I looked at it, the more I liked the shadows on the posts and just the lighting of the whole picture.

What do you think? A beautiful capture of a January morning or just a fence with some tree limbs? I'm not sure just what I think of it myself.

Travis, great job with the blog. I don't blog very much - it is too easy for me to get bogged in blogs, then I'm dogged, counting logs in the middle of blogs. :-)

That's the most poetic blog comment I think I've ever read!

Hope everything is going well with you guys at FCC.

Great picture. I see a beautiful January morning where the Lord is speaking through His creation. Once again, great shoot.

I actually really like this. The diffused lighting and frost make the scene so beautiful! I like how the dark form of the fence is contrasted against the sharp outline of the frosted grass. I don't know how it would have looked earlier in the morning; maybe it would have been even better!
