Frost

The hot, sunny weather continued.  But the nights were often cold – once down to minus 14 C.  Because we had a bit of a rain, there was enough moisture on the vegetation to make a white frost.

One thought on “Frost”

  1. I love your frost pictures – especially the ones done with max zoom. What is the maximum zoom on your camera? How are the new residents of Gabriola doing? Quite a switch from the Chilcotin but beautiful.
