Mickey and I went out on Friday for lunch and a movie and we had to stop in the theatre parking lot to take pictures of the frost laden trees there.
But first, lunch...we went to the Famoso Neapolitan Pizzeria...oh so good! We had a salad of romaine, cranberries, walnuts and bleu cheese
and a small pizza with white sauce, proscuitto, dates, walnuts, brussels sprouts, with a drizzle of honey - incredibly good!
Then we went out into the cold frosty air and took our frosty tree pictures. I didn't alter the color on any of the pictures - the sky really was that blue. In Alberta in the winter when you have a clear blue sunny day, it's a sure sign that the air is extremely cold...but so beautiful!
There's no snow on the trees, just frost. There is snow on the ground though...it'll be there till the end of March and probably into April as well.
|I love the lacey look of this tree|
|I tried to get a close-up of the frost crystals, but I didn't have my camera with me,|
just my cell phone.
|Another attempted close-up. You can see (sort-of) the frost crystals on the|
branch behind the one I tried to focus on.
|And here's Mickey freezing in the cold.|
By the time we watched the movie - Silver Lining Playbook - there wasn't a bit of frost left on the trees - the wind had blown it all off. So we were glad we stopped beforehand to take the pictures.
Winter does have it's good points.
