Frosty Leaves

Frost on the forest floor

Six-Rivers National Forest - Humboldt County California

I fondly remember this morning. Setting the tripod and camera - and then fighting to get my gloves off to set the exposure and make the exposure - then racing to get the gloves on - the equipment stowed away - and me back into the warm car as quickly as possible. brrrr...

@hugo poon: Hey, partner - place a camera in our hands and this is what we do. It is always a treat to hear from the Hong Kong enchanter.

Really nature is an artist!
A lovely composition with wonderful colours palette and textures. The leaves create very nice patterns and there is a fine play of light an shade.
Well thought and well done!

The gloves, the cold, and the dash back to the warm car are all memories of a few hours ago. Beautiful job with exposure on a difficult subject both technically and physically braving the cold.

Lovely arrangement Stephen along with a touch of the morning sunlight creates such a beautiful natural work of art. Know the feeling about cold numb fingers especially as we get older.
