Photo of the Week – January 7, 2016

Earlier this week, we had a foggy and frosty day.  When the clouds finally started to thin, I popped across town to Lincoln Creek Prairie to see if I could get some photographs of the frost.  Here are a few images I came back with.

Another stiff sunflower.  Sunflowers seem to display frost very attractively.

See what I mean?  Maximilian sunflower this time (Helianthus maximiliani).

    Tall Thistle tipped with frosty crystals….my favorite! The brevity of these little visual, natural miracles adds to the beauty for me. It’s the small things that you capture so well for your readers; Thanks so much!
