Sugar dusted

Uploaded: October 11, 2006


The other day we had a huge frost so I decided to take advantage of it and snap a few pics. It was such a gorgeous morning with all of the beautifully dusted leaves!! Added a slight diffuse glow in PS

As usual I am too busy but I wanted to comment on this, very nice!!
You are right about the "sugar" look.
Elements of water are really fascinating, I am going to have to do a photo study of that!
