Frosty Morning Sunrise

This past week has been full of very cold temperatures and a lot of frost. Not much in the way of snow, but Jack has been around our area working his magic.
These pictures show my morning view on the drive to work this week.

The sun was rising,


and I wish these pictures could convey,

the sparkle that the sunlight was creating.

  4. Lots of frost here too in the mornings. I believe it's the humidity plus the cold temps? Not sure.

    Makes everything look so clean and white -- your pictures are so pretty. :)

  8. Beautiful pictures, I like the way the frost kind of sparkles. The morning light before the sun is my favorite time.

  9. Beautiful! We just had frost this morning too in Iowa. I guess we're supposed to get some ice tonight as well as snow tomorrow night.
    I'll enjoy it all when it's cleared from the roads!
    Have a great weekend!

  17. I know what you mean...my birch trees seem to glow in the sunlight with their bright yellow leaves,but I can't catch that. Your photos are always so beautiful...you have a great eye!!

  18. I love your photos. What kind of camera do you use? I'm looking at new digital cameras. I've actually got a Nikon SLR but it's so big to haul around that I seldom take it with me. I've also got a small point and shoot which is what I usually use but I'm looking at something in between.

    You've got a great eye (more important than the camera!) and your photos are lovely.

  19. Love the photos. Even though I cannot see the sparkles, I still remember them on the frost. And, feel the cold just looking at your photos!

  24. These are lovely pictures. It's good to be able to have a camera with you on your way to work.

    I pass a silhouetted scene every morning and although I can't stop due to the nature and speed of the road, I see a gradual change with the sun every day. I talk myself out of being able to photograph it anyway.
