I love waking up on a sunny winter morning and see that the trees frosted over in the night. The newly formed frosts glitters in the sunshine on a sunny winter day. It provides the stark beauty of the contrasting darkness of the dormant tree and the white of the winter snow off-set by the beauty of the deep blue from the sky behind. For as much beauty as it provides, it also means a colder day.
Frost on the Trees
These are the branches the times that playing with photography is so fun. Looking through the trees to the trees behind, the frost allows the contrast needed to show the depth of field. The thing I love most about this style of photography is the lesson that it teaches. If you focus on what is right in front of you, that is all you will see. But when you look beyond the obvious, more beauty abounds. Some people can't see the forest through the trees. Some people can't see the trees through the forest. See and recognize both. For only in doing so can you see the whole picture.
The gentle breeze of the they day whisps through the branches gently loosens the frost sending it to the ground like a gentle snowfall. The newly fallen frost glistens as it lightly dusts the ground freshening up the browning snow. It also covers the bunnies activities allowing me to see if he is still active in the yard.
I am an eclectic person. I’ve broken the mold for the stereotype of what an accountant is like (as an accountant with a very creative side). I LOVE to challenge what “always has been”. Let’s look at things and think about them. Is there a "better" out there that we have missed because “it’s always been this way”? “Live, Laugh and Love” is one of my mottos. There is so much beauty in life we just need to stop and appreciate it. “Dance like no one is watching!” because the music in your head doesn’t match what’s playing for anyone else. :^)
