5 in 5 - December 2016 - Jack Frost

    Welcome to '5 in 5' where on the 5th of
each month I post 5 photos that I have
taken in 5 minutes.

And November flashes past into December.... and with it the buzz of Christmas and excitement begins. I am trying to get into the festive spirit and have just got the decorations down from the loft. I was going to take photos but there is not time to unpack so as an after thought I'll save those for another day. And I will go back to my original plan, because a visit to the museum the other day made me stop and reach for my camera.

At 10am the frost was still thick. The cold has only reached us recently and we notice the change, but I'm not complaining. We have been blessed to have a summer that seemed to go on and on, and a splendid autumn that was rich in colour and warm days. So with camera in hand I took photos as we walked across the lawn:

A good frost with blue skies is a start to a good day, and I hope where ever you are that the weather is being kind and gentle. I will be back with another post before Christmas, so enjoy your own preparations and festivities. I have two Christmas meals next week and other good things planned. December is looking good so far...

  1. They are lovely. The frost on frost has made some spectacular patterns. Your fourth one is a great example of this. There have been some fabulous frost pictures about. It's worth having a look at Helena's snap pictures and links if you haven't already. Have a lovely Christmas.

  2. Amazing photos of the frost. The tree with the red berries is so intense in the colour & the frost on the post, what a great catch & photo.

  3. Love the frost on top of the posts! There have been many lovely posts of frosty photos recently, but we haven't had a heavy one yet. Snow, yes; heavy frost, no.

  4. Wow: the frost on the top of those posts is really something. Your picture shows it off beautifully. No frost here yet; but I don't suppose I'd be able to take such nice pictures even if it did appear!

  5. I absolutely love picture 2! the light and the colours are beautiful Mind you, picture 4 of the frost on the posts is stunning. Im glad I don't have to choose just one.
