December Frost

In this part of the world the typical December landscape is snowy and the default background for everything is white! Bare ground is unusual, and a  contrasting morning frost even more so. Last night started out cold and clear but at some point a heavy fog rolled in and froze, covering everything in huge white crystals.

I was a little late to the party and showed up with the wrong lens, but I managed to capture a few memories from this spectacular event.
