One Word Photo Challenge: Frosty Grass

Frosty Days-010

This week Jennifer at Jennifer Nichole Wells has asked us for our cold photos.  Well that is what we are here in Hastings at the moment.  Snow on Monday and heavy frosts every day.  No wonder I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning.  Brrrr.

I have tried to get some photos of the frost close up, from inside of course.  Using maximum zoom.  Warmer that way.  So here are some of my frosty  photos.

You can tell that even the dew drops are frozen.

A Serendipitous Story: A New Perspective of Art Deco

Art Deco Lights-004

Good morning from a cold Hastings day.  I am so late this morning as I just couldn’t get out of my warm, cosy bed.  It has been very cold this week and today I didn’t need to get up for anything so why should I?

Anyway this week Cee from Cee’s Photography has asked us for our photos showing different perspectives.

A couple of weeks ago I was really lucky with the weather.  When I got up on this Friday it was raining hard.  I had a plan for our social snappers group.  I wanted to walk around Hastings and take different photos of the Art Deco features.  I wanted to demonstrate the different  perspectives that we can take of the buildings, and in particular our street lights.  Needless to say I wasn’t happy.  I did have a backup plan of photo editing etc indoors, but we want to get out and take photos.

As I was eating my breakfast I noticed that the rain had stopped and the sun was trying to shine.

By the time I got into the Women’s Centre at around 9.15 AM the sky had completely cleared.

And as you can see, the sky was totally cloudless for the whole time we were wandering around town.

But in the afternoon the weather closed in again and started raining hard again.

Such a serendipitous day, which is also part of Marilyn’s challenge at SERENDIPITY.
