Deep Freeze

The few weeks between the very end of the autumn leaves and the first freeze is always a hard time for me photography wise. The plain grey skies, lack of flowers or mushrooms, and the east wind keep me indoors. Therefore, I took a few weeks off from posting just to enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with my family, get my Christmas decorations up, celebrate my Moms birthday, and stay warm through the wet, windy, cold weather we had been experiencing lately.

Things turned this week, when we had our first light dusting of snow and deep freeze. I went out with my camera this past weekend and took a drive up the Columbia River Gorge. The temperature was 21 degrees, but there was no wind for the first time in what seems like weeks. Along the path was a rock wall, and in the crevices was this crust of delicate frost.
