Just above freezing

No more than a mile and a half from where I captured the roses shown in my previous post, is Myrdalsvannet. It's almost on the same altitude as I live, but there are hill tops all around it and there is always a freezing breeze coming down the river from the colder mountains.

Just where the cold breeze hits the slightly warmer air, things tend to get covered in frost while the rest of nature stays above freezing.

These shots were taken on the exact same day (and an hour earlier) as the ones in the previous post. As you can see, the smaller puddles were slightly frozen, the grass was frozen, but the trees were not, once you got a couple of feet up.

The frost shots were taken in a spot where the sun never shines during the winter time, and that is probably one of the reasons it is colder here, than when I turned around and shot the picture of the water in the sun. It might be a bit hard to imagine, but the first and second shot in the row below was taken almost from the same spot. I only had to move a few feet.

It was a very special feeling on this trip, and i really got to see how wonderful mother nature can get :)
