Something different again for me this morning. A couple of grab shots as we were on our way out yesterday morning. Simply the frost on our car roof, looking back would have liked to have gotten a different angle, but hey that's life.

And a little history of Jack:

Jack Frost is a sprite and the personification of crisp, cold, winter weather, a variant of Old Man Winter. He is also at times personified as a mischief making spirit that loves being carefree and a loner. With no obligations he is able to flourish.

He is traditionally thought to leave the frosty, fernlike crystal patterns on windows on cold mornings (window frost or fern frost), and nipping the extremities in cold weather. He is sometimes described or depicted with paint brush and bucket coloring the autumnal foliage red, yellow, purple, and orange. Jack Frost is friendly but if provoked, he will kill his victims by covering them with snow. On the other hand, some stories and lore believe that Jack would never put anyone to harm without fair reason, even if he is provoked by the other person.

All C&Cs welcome

Thanks for looking

V1 by miles. Could be an aerial view of an arctic forest, just a few trees in a clearing in the mist...
