Evening sunsets and early morning frost

Yesterday late afternoon, armed with my Canon camera we took a walk along the cobbled streets of Old Leigh - our nearest fishing harbour about ten minutes drive away. It was a gloriously sunny afternoon and always in search of a good sunset we hung around to snap up the panorama.

By the time we got home the sun had gone but it had left some beautiful red skies behind so stopped off at our churchyard at the top of the hill to snap a few more

This morning's walk was bright and crispy under foot and took me across some local common ground. Everything was coated in this beautiful frost - I believe it's called a hoare frost. My camera phone came in useful here

 Mother nature at its best eh?

 See you soon

  1. I love those crisp, frosty mornings and the sunset is so beautiful. Lovely photos, Patricia:)

  2. Beautiful sunset photos. :)
    I went out for a walk this morning across frosty, frozen fields, but there wasn't any sun so I left the camera behind.
    I think one of the nicest parts is coming back to a warm home, and enjoying a cup of tea indoors, but feeling invigorated by the fresh air. Wishing you a happy new year.

  3. Fabulous photos Patricia. Those little lights twinkling around the tree silhouette look just like fireflies, very pretty. Suzy x

  4. Lovely photographs although my little camera wouldn't be able to cope well with bright sunsets. Frost was lovely wasn't it?

  5. Isn't frost beautiful?! Great photos :) We've had plenty of frost (and snow!) here :)

  6. Hello Patricia,

    Oh my, stunning, beautiful and magical photos. It's lovely to see the other end of the day, my favourite is the last sunset picture, I am a sucker for skeleton branch trees with the sun in the background.
    What a fabulous morning walk, the frost is just beautiful.

    Mother Nature at her best.


  7. That all looks magical. Thanks for sharing it.

  8. Wow those are wonderful images. It must have been such magical moments witnessing this! How lucky we were you had your camera! Sarah x

  9. It certainly is....and it is all free.
    I love to see the ice formations on the plants......each one different to its neighbour. Magical indeed.

  10. We have had some gorgeous days this winter beautifully caught by you. Hoare frost is like natures icing sugar the way it magically coats the leaves and stems.

  11. Wow, your photos are stunning! I'm jealous!!

    I was looking for photo heavy blogs to follow and found yours through a fellow blogger, so I thought I would stop by and say hi! It would totally make my day if you stopped by my blog sometime, or kept in touch! - www.domesticgeekgirl.com
