Hoarfrost Fences

7 Mar

I woke this morning to a beautiful winter wonderland.  The whole world was still and covered in giant frost crystals.

The magnolia tree was covered.

So was the crabapple tree.

The evergreen bushes were also looking beautiful in their white covering.

Even the bird feeders and the shepard’s hook had little crystals spiking from them.


My favorite, however, is what it does to the fences.

What an amazing sight!

      I love when we get this thick foggy frosty weather! Of course, it would have been better if I had gotten to stay home and take more pictures. 😉

    I really love the chicken wire all frosted up, too cool!! 🙂
    We don’t get that kind of frost here, I guess there isn’t enough moisture.

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 1:54 pm #

      Warm and cold. It’s frozen fog. I love when this happens because it means there is no wind and it’s perfect silent white beauty.

    WOW! That is really cool looking! It’s super warm here in WI. Did all your frost melt?

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 1:54 pm #

      The sun broke through the fog, and it was all melted within a short time. It was beautiful while it lasted though.

    This is just beautiful!! That first one is my absolute favorite, but they’re all so pretty. We don’t have anything like that around here, and I’m just amazed every time I see it!

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 2:28 pm #

      It’s not often we get it, but when we do it is just magical!

  5. Barbara F. March 7, 2013 at 3:04 pm #

    Great photos, pretty to look. 😉 xo

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 3:12 pm #

      Thanks so much! It really was beautiful this morning.

    Such magnificent photographs of Jack Frost. I can’t even imagine how you can capture the magic of snow so perfectly. I think you might carry a bit of magic dust behind your lens. Beautiful.


    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 3:13 pm #

      Thank you. I really was rushed to try and take pictures before I left this morning. There wasn’t a lot of thought in these pictures.

  7. Lynne @ eyeing lynne's camera lens March 7, 2013 at 3:53 pm #

    WOW! Beautiful capture. Love the first one. Happy Skywatching!

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 5:17 pm #

      Thanks. There’s something magical about the hoarfrost.

  8. BiTi March 7, 2013 at 4:04 pm #

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 5:18 pm #

      It truly looks like it! Luckily, the sun burned through to give us a beautiful day.

      The book is brand new! I love when I have the chance to photograph the hoarfrost. Unfortunately, I had to rush to work this morning.

  13. Shane March 7, 2013 at 7:57 pm #

    Wonderful images – I can see how snowflakes are made now!!

    Ooo, you are sooo right…the fences are magical! It’s like the snow is a little artist making snow sculptures! Love it!

    • Teresa March 7, 2013 at 10:15 pm #

      Mother Nature is a wonderful artist!

      Thank you! It is beautiful.

  22. Nancy March 8, 2013 at 5:12 am #

    I love hoar frost — we’ve had quite a bit of it this winter, but nothing like what you have in your photos, Teresa! Gorgeous!

    If you don’t mind — I’m going to post a link to your giveaway in my sidebar. It’s the least I can do after you were such a good sport about my book post this week. Lol.

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 6:51 am #

      I certainly do appreciate it! This is the first time this year we’ve had such a frost. It is beautiful!

  23. Janis March 8, 2013 at 8:15 am #

    Stunning photos. I do love the snow on the fences…only mother nature can do that kind of artwork!

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 8:27 am #

      And she is a very talented artist!

  24. Ellen March 8, 2013 at 9:19 am #

    Beautiful pictures!

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 9:28 am #

      Thanks, Ellen. It was a wonderful sight to wake up to.

  25. Beth March 8, 2013 at 9:28 am #

    awesome shots. i’m trying to figure out what soaps to try – so many choices. any suggestions for you – since you make them all?? ( :

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 9:31 am #

      Thanks, Beth. Soaps really are very personal. If you like fragrances, there’s lilac or Beach Breezes that are quite popular. If you want gentle and good for the skin, I’d recommend Oatmeal Honey, Calendula Honey or Calendula. The Cornmeal Lemongrass is good for exfoliating and grime.

  26. Dorothee Lang March 8, 2013 at 4:00 pm #

    wonderful images. there is magic in winter. thanks for sharing – will go visit your book now. congratulations on it 🙂

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 4:44 pm #

      Thanks so much. It truly was a beautiful morning!

  27. Latane March 8, 2013 at 4:45 pm #

    Magnificent!! I’ve never seen hoar frost but it looks magical.

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 4:46 pm #

      It really is magical. With no wind and the fog, it’s silent and beautiful.

  28. Pat March 8, 2013 at 5:57 pm #

    Gorgeous. That first shot is amazing.

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 6:13 pm #

      Thanks! It really was a beautiful sight to wake up to. 🙂

  29. Ebie March 8, 2013 at 10:28 pm #

    I hope those frost won;t hurt the buds!

    • Teresa March 8, 2013 at 10:44 pm #

      Me too. It’s really too early for them to be budding.

  30. Stewart M March 10, 2013 at 4:49 am #
