Pictures for Pam, Day 105: HFF: Frosty Fencing Wrapped Around Post

Pictures for Pam, Day 105: HFF: Frosty Fencing Wrapped Around Post
(+ 2 insets)

The forecast promised a very cold morning and I crossed my fingers for frost before I went to sleep last night. Just because it's cold enough for frost does not mean it will be frosty! However, I had a good feeling that it would be fabulous this morning and I was right! Peeking outside after hopping out of bed, I was rewarded by a sparking shimmer on everything! Pumpkin and I were both very impressed and talked about it at length while I took my shower. Ok well, maybe Pumpkin only laughed at me and whistled with the water sounds but I'd like to think she was suitably moved by the frosty world outside! :)

I spent about 45 minutes taking pictures and I was so happy I'd prepared my camera beforehand. All I needed to do was dive into my warm clothes and bounce outside and right into a glimmering wonderland!

Some of the subjects that I captured were metal screws, nails, wire, barbs, hinges, springs...the mail box, frozen droplets on the mail box, leaves, wasp galls, ice at the edge of the pond, frosty weeds poking out of the pond...the list goes on and on! Let's just say I came back to the house with over 400 pictures so you get the general idea! My feeling is that we won't have a lot more frosty days so if I want pictures, today's going to be one of my last chances!

I was so excited to look over my pictures and boy did I get a BUNCH of winners! I also got a LOT of garbage shots. Ugh. I may need to take a monopod with me because I was got so many blurry pictures. A flash can definitely help capture an image without blur but it's not a miracle-worker. The smaller the subject, the harder it is to get a crisp picture by hand-holding your camera. MEH! It's a good thing that I took multiples along with aperture sets of each subject. Sometimes I'd get 9 garbage pictures and only one good one! And unfortunately, I failed completely on some very nice subjects. Better luck next time, right? And I can't cry too hard...I got several dozen nice pictures that I'll need to process!

This is my day to post my Happy Fence Friday picture so I looked through this morning's photo shoot I and found one that would work just fine! It's barbed fencing wire that's wrapped around a post. The frost isn't very prominent but I really liked the colors and interesting visual. It was on the outside of our property next to our gate and the red color caught my eye. I've also included an inset of the entire width of the wire wrapped around the post...plus a guest I didn't notice until I saw it on the computer! Finally, I have another picture of frosty barbed wire that I took a few weeks ago. :)

Pam, I did a look-see for "frost" on your photo stream and found a series of frosty artwork that you'd created. I especially like your Frost Flowers Circle Scope which is marvelous eye candy! (Steve loved it too!) By the way, it was fun to read about what you'd done for jobs. I have many times wondered if it would be fun to work as a dental hygienist but a technician would be more interesting I'm sure. Not at all surprised that you designed jewelry and done graphic design as well--you have a wonderful eye! And of course, I can see gardening being a big draw, it's great fun! *BIG HUGS* MY DEAR!!!

Beautifully captured Janet...............the detail in the fence post is magnificent! The rusty fencing wire contrasts nicely with the vertical lines on the post and the colour of the rust is gorgeous. I also like the fronted curl of the barb.

Two cracking images in the PiPs too.............especially the second one of the barbed wire which has absolutely fantastic bokeh.

HFF to you.............and have a super weekend.

Those are wonderful photos, Janet. Love all three and couldn't possibly pick a favorite. Nice that you caught a fly in one of them - rather unexpected and a nice bonus. Must be waiting for the sun to warm him before he disappears. Wouldn't expect him to have escaped the frost, but apparently it wasn't a very hard frost.

Sorry for the delay in responding. I'm still up in the frozen north and my youngest brother showed up last night. He lives in Michigan but was working in Edmonton and found out I was up here, too. Rather a coincidence, but enjoyed visiting with him. Books and photography are the subjects when he and I get together.

He was on Ipernity for a while but isn't any longer. I think he posts most of his photos on Facebook and I'm not on there. He does a lot of traveling and is really expert at astral photography. He's also an avid hiker and we always get out if he's in our area. We usually provide him with some home cooking as well.

Don't have my camera along and haven't had opportunity to use it, but feel a bit "undressed" without it. Mostly cold and bad roads up here, but not much better at home. Nancy said they've had snow almost every day, so while I'm eager for home, I don't expect much better weather.

Hi Janet

I really like this!

It is a really great composition. So simple, yet so effective. Just three different elements, each of which is so dissimilar to the others. Very artistic, you must be so pleased.!
And yes, I did see the fly too!
Looks like the black coils are some old electrical cable been re-purposed !

Best Wishes, HFF, and a good weekend

Oh wow Janet I love this. I see your little guest there - but if you are like me, I don't realise this until I get the pictures on the computer and see the odd visitor there. As I've said before - when I take pictures, I can't see if the picture is in focus or not, so I have to wait til I hear the beep and then take the picture. So I'm thrilled to take it back to the computer and then see that the focus is actually okay!!!!

Yes frosty days are virtually over for this year I think - here I only had frost about 5 times, I'm so lucky to live on the temperate side of the country.

I love the textures here Janet. Three terrific shots with lovely detail. I do like the way the barbed wire sparkles with the frost on it and the coils in the main shot actually look as if they are coated in diamond dust. Have a good week.
