Today, Sunday, while my FIL and my loving wife Martha went to the Rec Center to exercise; I went out for a short spin in the same neighborhoods where I got the pictures for the Frosty Scenes posting previous to this one.
Temperatures were in the low 20s as Scarlett and I rode along all warm and snug in my riding gear.
To my delight, the cold temperatures had preserved some of the hoar frost on the trees in the area, though it wasn't as thick as before.
The solid gray skies overhead made me feel like we were riding inside a snow globe for which the contents haven't been shaken up.
Still, we meandered about on mostly snow-covered dirt roads and took in the sights:
In the neighborhood prior to the one I used for pics previously, the
view of the road ahead inspired a stop
The fellow above and his partner dog, were losing the minds running
back and forth along the fence line and barking while I took the picture.
Motoring just a few miles further east, I was once again in the ranching neighborhood that provides scenic spots for photos. I started with a nicely laid out driveway which I'd been unable to photograph due to the sun's position on the previous occasion. That's one thing about overcast skies, it makes picture taking simpler in terms of lights and shadows.
Next, just a short distance away, the copse of hoar frosted trees were still waiting for someone to come along and photograph them.
The last shot of frozen leaves, was taken at the spot above. The rich brownish color encased in ice caught my eye, I hope you like it.
