I’ve always rather liked the apparent contradiction of white frost on green needles of evergreens. This morning we had a dense fog and 24 degrees F, which made for great conditions for taking frost photos. If you look back at some of the earliest posts of this blog, you’ll see my very first attempts at capturing frost, and that was a much more dramatic frost than this one. Looking back, this picture seems to me to be the clearest proof of how much I have improved as a photographer over the past year. I hope I can say I’ve improved as much again a year from now.
There wasn’t much in the way of post-processing on this image, though I did bring out the green, and muted the red/orange background at the top to black and white to make the green pop a little more.
