Trout Lake, Portage Park early December.
The hoar frost on the south shore signals that our lake is very close to freezing over for the winter.
A couple of days should see it covered in ice.
We won’t see waves again until the end of April, if then.
Delicacy from Mother Nature.
Oak leaves hang around all winter and then finally fall in the spring.
They provide little bits of colour during the winter in a mostly monochrome world.
Delicate grasses covered with hoar frost.
Some mornings are quite delicious.
Near the top of the mountain the frost-coated trees look delicately spectacular.
It takes a lot of time in cloud to produce these beauties.
Maple branches covered in Hoar Frost.
Hoar frost crystals and snowflakes are some of the most delicate things you will ever see.
Someone has said that no two snowflakes are the same.
How would one know?
And does it matter?
It was so spectacular the other morning that I just had to post another frost photo.
This is Portage Park on Trout Lake.
Another photograph from a couple of days ago.
Sadly the frost lasted only until noon and then things went back to normally beautiful.
The lake is freezing over. Lots of fog which created frost in the -20C temperatures of the night.
The tops of the trees had heavy coatings and when the wind blew, it snowed frost flakes.
The communications tower on Whistler Peak.
Lots of living in the clouds produces this delicate beauty to see on sunny days.
