… wind chill today is -5° F. I haven’t been out, so there weren’t too many opportunities to shoot pictures. Indeed, my windows were so frosted up that I literally couldn’t see through them. They were actually natural examples of what is called “frosted glass”; they looked like they could have been used for bathroom windows.
So, seeing that I couldn’t shoot through them, I decided to photograph the windows themselves. Getting the light just right for this kind of work is the tricky bit; it entails a deal of waiting, for something that might not happen at all.
Here are a couple, shot at the same time …
That window screen is not frozen into the frost, it’s actually a fraction of an inch away from it, towards the camera.
The next were the first I’ve taken and used a tint of colour to make them a little more interesting. First, the untinted versions:
And next, the shapes of the frost pattern suggesting a green tint:
A darker green, this time …
I thought the resemblance to an evergreen-covered mountainside was quite striking … couldn’t resist adding the colour.
The last one is just pretty straightforward … just a light blue tint:
Well, that’s what I’ve been doing these past days … it ain’t much, but it’s been a bit of fun for me. I hope you like ’em.

These are very nice pictures . I like them a lot and the imagination started to work. I had not seen the green tint just yet and my thoughts where in the direction of hillside and forest. And the green tinted pictures are so very nice.

The ones with color look like a forrest mountain range. The snow and frost are probably gone by now. I’m late in catching up. It’s starting to get quite warm here best Sun City, Arizona. Hope all is well with you.

Thanks, Pam … I was struck with the resemblance to forested mountains, myself, which is why I added the green.
Good to hear from you, Pam … I’ve not been very active here, lately. The Weather being a major factor … dim light and dull gtey, day after day. I’ve seldom seen such a stretch of discouraging weather. It seems to have reinforced the inconvenience and awkwardness produced by the damned Bag, which inhibits my mobility a great deal.
I’ve simply GOT to get myself moving, however limited it will be.

Sorry to hear that. It’s the long, hot summers that get to me. They didn’t used to. It’s living in this trailer that makes it worse. It has A/C of course, but it is not efficient. I leave the trailer almost daily to get a small bite to eat somewhere and to be in nice air conditioning.
