This winter in our neighborhood, we saw only a couple of days exhibiting the ever beautiful hoarfrost. Today the length of the crystals on the trees, branches and barbed wire in our yard were displayed at a glorious 1″ long. Small and delicate, magical and dreamy, these pure white spikes demanded a closer look and an abstracting approach to picture making. I found that the shape and design of the frost rendered more pure and less distracting in a black and white conversion. Click on the image above to get to the gallery with the rest of todays work.
