Succulent Frost


.

More pictures from the patio. On the weekend there was a heavy frost on the succulents. Frost seems to be a wordpress photo theme – hardly surprising since so many of us in the northern hemisphere are blogging about our surroundings as they start to freeze. A nice simple post today. Not too many words. Hey Jaunita – do you think these would make a good side dish for your oak leaf, perhaps followed by a trip to the dentist?

    • Lynn – welcome to my blog, I am very happy to have you here. I just looked at your blog and listened to some of your music. Wow! What a wonderful combination of music and garden and other images.
      Frosting is such a perfect word – I wish I had thought of it for my title.

  2. Here in Alabama, condensation in the camera is a problem in the summer and in the winter. I miss lots of sunrises because the camera fogs up when I take it outside on cold mornings when it is warm in the house. Summer at the beach is the reverse problem–cold in the house and HOT outside. If I put the camera in a ziploc bag and leave it outside for awhile, it helps. I’m very impatient, though.

    • That sounds like a real pain. Maybe someone else reading this has some advice that would be helpful. I wonder if it would help if you could store your camera in a sealed bag with one or two of those silicone packs that absorb moisture. The problem is the change in temperature – if there was some way you could store the camera at outdoor temperature that might help too. Would it be a bad idea to store the camera in a sealed bag in the fridge, if it is not too cold in relative to the outside temperature? I have no idea, but someone might.

    • Hi ken, glad to you see back after my rant in response to your comment yesterday ;). I am glad you like the way these lenses perform – I am constantly pleased to be using them again, especially that macro. In much younger days for it and me it was a reliable and useful companion on some great field projects all over British Columbia and in other places too.

    • Hi Doug, that is a shame really, but you do get some really great ice patterns and similar that we almost never get here. I will try not to tease you with a frost picture in, say, January. No promises however about the snow drop blossoms which come out around or just after Christmas.

    • Hi xinapray – I am drawn back to that image as well, I dithered about leading with that one since I like to put the one the I like best first, but sometimes it does not work out that way, or I can’t really decide. What I like about the first one is the backl it pink plant in the upper left and the way it draws the eye. But the second one is overall a more pleasing image I think. Right now anyway.

    • Hi BisonWoman – welcome to my blog, its always a pleasure to have new readers. Around here I don’t seem to have to worry about fogging. The only time I have had a serious problem was a few years ago when I was working in a cave in the summer – it was cold and wet in there and the equipment did not like going back and forth to a warm and quite humid outdoors. Some of the cameras we just ended up keeping in the cave at that temperature (in watertight cases) which helped a lot. Not a practical solution in most instances though.
