Frost in a window with a very slight boost to the color. I used a piece of black foam core outside the window (breaking a mirror and almost breaking my neck in the process) to bring out the flames of the frost.

Thank you, Anita. I’m so glad you like it.

Spectacular! Photography can be hazardous, can’t it? Glad you are okay.

Thanks, Rick! Yes, it’s crazy the situations I find myself in sometimes to get a better angle for a shot. 🙂 It’s worth it a lot of the time, even just for the fun of experimenting. Thank you for dropping by!

Very good work!
Thank you, Bente. That’s very kind of you. I’m eager to experiment more with frost now.

What can account for all the nonlinear stuff? Looks like vegetation of some sort? D

That’s the frost! It’s all frost. And it was melting fast. 🙂
January 23, 2014 at 8:30 pm
Well … I’ll be! Truly singular capture … I’ve never seen anything like it.

I’m eager to experiment more with this. It’s fascinating to see how the frost formations change their shapes as they melt.

Great idea about the black foam core. Beautiful shot.

Thank you, Cynthia. I would have tried some interesting backdrops, but that was all I had on hand at the moment. I’d like to experiment with different colors in the background.
January 23, 2014 at 8:35 pm
Wow, this is fantastic, Lemony! I had absolutely no idea that frost could form in such beautiful and intricate shapes. Reminds me of peacock feathers. I love the tones here too. Natural tones are always better than we create ourselves. I love this! 🙂

It’s amazing to see the different shapes that frost can make. Yes, and now that you mention it, I see the reminiscence of the peacock feathers! These frost formations bend and stretch in all kinds of fascinating ways as they are melting.

I’ve done this a lot but never thought of using a background. Great idea and a great photo!
January 23, 2014 at 10:56 pm
Thanks, Allen. Give it a try! I’d bet you have some great frost formations where you are.

It looks three-dimensional, and yet, I know it’s not. Amazing work. Be careful though! We want you around for a long time! (what we do for our art, eh?)
January 23, 2014 at 11:12 pm
Thank you very much, Carissa. I’m glad to know a three-dimensional appearance comes through in the image for you. Yeah, it’s crazy what we’ll do sometimes for a shot, isn’t it. 🙂

Amazing formations! Each one growing its own way. I like the black background, Melanie. Your narrative reminds me of some of your other dangerous explorations. 😉
What we won’t do for art!
January 24, 2014 at 3:35 am
Thank you, Karen. Yes, we can even have adventures hanging out of windows in our own homes. 😀
January 25, 2014 at 2:31 am
You found a stunning image = it almost looks sea creature.
January 24, 2014 at 3:48 am
Thank you, Yoshi-sensei. I felt, too, that these formations looked like they were swimming underwater.
January 25, 2014 at 2:35 am
Movement, action, the antithesis of frost-wonderful!
January 24, 2014 at 2:11 pm
Exactly! Such a great comment. Thank you, Elena! You’ve noted precisely what captured my attention about these formations.
January 25, 2014 at 2:38 am
Just wonderful! A fairy tale in ice. Take care!
January 24, 2014 at 8:30 pm
I like that thought very much, a fairy tale in ice. 🙂 Thank you, Richard.
January 25, 2014 at 2:44 am
Really amazing, Melanie! I can just see the fairy ice skaters from Disney’s Fantasia twirling around each other, creating these feathery flowers of frost!
