Icy the snow.

It’s now well and truly winter, with snow in Scotland, frosts down south, and strong winds all over the UK.

The winter weather brings another dimension to photography; frost.  It’s just a bit of frozen water but it’s beautiful.

"Frosty plants" by Derek Gale

These grasses covered with hoar frost on a very cold winter morning look almost monochromatic.  They’ve got that blue shadow look from the clear blue sky above.  I chose an angle so the plants were strongly lit from one side, and slightly from behind, to really pick out the ice crystals.  The long lens has compressed the perspective somewhat, but the dark background is still nicely separate.
