Day #1798 Title: Heavy Frosting
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: Winter has arrived with a vengeance – and a very heavy frost. I set out for a lovely 5-mile walk today, taking a big loop to Galleywood Common and back home. I was extremely glad of my thermals and woolly hat! Even though a lot of the frost had melted in sunnier locations, there were still plenty of wonderfully iced leaves in shady parts of the common. I loved the effect the frost had on this braken.

Day #1475

Day #1475 Title: Hoar Frost Grass
Location: Galleywood Common
Camera: Canon EOS 7D /60mm EF-S f/2.8 USM
Notes: Finally Winter seems to have arrived in Essex, and with it the first really hard frost of the year. We haven’t had many this winter so far, even before Christmas. So I took a trip to the Common to look for pictures first thing this morning. The sun had come out but it was still quite a while before it had the warmth to melt the hoar frost clinging to all the plants. I spent some time photographing this little bunch. I thought it made an excellent subject for Treasure Hunt Theme #15 – Turn Of The Seasons. Here are a few more shots I took today as well.
