A rare event was before my eyes on Saturday morning.

After a heavy night out on Friday night with some fellow photographers I received a phone call from a family member saying that a heavy frost had settled across the island.

Frost is VERY rare in Guernsey, let alone a decent layer that shows up well in photographs and for over two years now I have struggled to capture anything that says "winter" about the beautiful island I live on.

My (wonderful) girlfriend got up with me and drove me to a place I had planned for such an event and my eyes were not disappointed. The hangover had soon disappeared as I composed this shot waiting for the sun to just lift over the horizon.

This is a 7 image stitch taken with my new 5D MkII. So what you see, even on the large size, is noting compared to what I can see on my screen. With a native size of over 40" at 300dpi I am so excited about getting this one printed and seeing just what this camera is capable of!

Thanks for looking

Dan

Hmmmm well looks as though this is yet another bum shot for here. Obviously not saturated enough!

Thanks to those that have commented though.

This deserves a great deal more attention, Dan, but I fear the thumbnail may have let it down! The large version is a treat to view - there's so much to enjoy throughout the wintery scene.

Thanks Ian.

I think your probably right! Looks as though it is thumbnail suicide. Oh well, I'll carry on regardless!

Large view really does this justice, love the tones and atmosphere.

What, are those realistic colours?!?! Not a vote magnet this one, but who cares, large is great.

It looks real...and I like that. Steve.

Thanks Steve and Geoff.

You should see it as a 45 inch print! It's one of my all time favourites.
