Photo Hunters - Spotted

Photo Hunters today are looking for something for the theme "Spotted". Last December, on my birthday, I woke up to one of the most gorgeous shows of hoar frost ever. It was so thick on everything it truly was a winter wonderland. We headed to the lake to take pictures and as we were driving down the road that runs parallel to it the hoar frost just started to fall off all the trees in huge, thick chunks making the perfect picture for "Spotted".

To see more takes on Spotted join in at Photo Hunters.

That looks like the perfect morning to sit inside and spend the day blogging.

What a glorious photo. We get those days, too. :) I think they are perfect for hot coffee and roasting a turkey. :)

So lovely. Have felt very uninspired to blog lately. Such a wonderful photo for The Hunt, Susanne.

I always love your photos.

I didn't even know what hoar frost was until I read it on your blog! I am so sheltered...
