sunrise and frost over farmingdale



























yesterday morning the frost on my car windshield was amazing. the sunrise helped as a backdrop as I attempted to take it's picture. it's not the greatest picture, but one still worth sharing.  if you'd like to gaze at more wondrous skies from all around the world or if you'd like to add your own sky, please visit the skywatch friday meme, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, wren, and sylvia.

Not the greatest photo?! It is fabulous. The detail and shapes of the frost etching in the foreground with the watercolor wash effect of the rising sun, sky, tree in the background. Beautiful! Glad you took the pic; and especially glad you shared it.

It's a wonderful photo, just perfect with the fabulous shapes of the frost in full focus and the sunrise in soft focus behind -- a once-in-a-lifetime sunrise photo.

A lovely shot with its wash of color from the sunrise. It has been a long time since I have seen ice crystals on the window.

Lori Skoog said...

Great shot. Now I have to go back and catch up with your posts!

Happy New Year!

oh, I like this very much. and I especially like that you tell in your header how long and wide Long Island is. I've been fascinated with it since reading The Great Gatsby as a young girl. It remains one of my favorite novels. But I digress. I love the mood of your photo. and the light of just at sunrise.

Really good capture. It is difficult to find days with great ice and enough light behind it to see them. Good for you!

Jack Frost painted on your car window Lily! So pretty!

Alexa said...

I'm in agreement with everyone—this picture is awesome!

mari said...

That's from your car window? Amazing. It almost looks artificial. I mean, it almost looks like someone deliberately decorated a window with snowflakes to look that way. Wonderful shot, love the colors and low light.
