    Cool shot Karen. Are those frozen ferns? It looks like a bunch of feathers. Really a wonderful detailed image.

Thank you, Lori and Claudia. This is actually the way the frost formed on my bedroom window over night. It's just all different frost formations. I thought they looked like ferns or feathers. Unfortunately, they have already started to melt away as the sun is hitting them. Hard to believe cause it's only 8 degrees out right now.

Thank you, very much, Paul. This was the first time I had seeing frost like this around here too. I'd never seen formations like this before. It lasted only a few hours that day, the sun melted it away by late afternoon.

Oh my goodness! This was the photo that was being showcased when I signed on and it is BEAUTIFUL! Its one of those photos that doesn't look like much on a thumbnail but when you enlarge it (or put your glasses on) it is absolutly amazing! I love it when people can capture God's amazing handy work like this. Fantastic!

Hello, Margaret. Thank you, so much, for your very kind words. I too was amazed at what was created. I'd never seen anything like it before and we've had some pretty cold winters here in NJ. I'm glad I was able to capture it before it melted away.

I, too, found this on the front page. Really incredible. It almost looks like a paisley pattern... I am in awe. Congratulations.

Hi, Carolyn. Thank you for your congratulations and responding. I too was amazed at this creation when I saw it. I haven't seen anything like it since and we had some pretty cold days here this winter.
