Lori Ditlefsen     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.

Wow... I just discovered your photo. Amazing and beautiful. We just don't have frost like that in Georgia. Congratulations on your win.

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.

No problem, Jean. I knew what you meant. It is my first ever win, on this website, though. It is an honor to even be considered. Thanks again.

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.

Hey Karen, this is a wonderful shot! Sorry I missed it before, but just had to congratulate you on seeing and photographing such a beautiful piece of God's handiwork in nature! Very sincere congratulations on your second placing for it also - it was VERY deserved!

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.
