While I mostly shoot with a Fujifilm X-T4, I still have my X-T3 with a longish zoom (55 – 200mm, or about 85-300 full frame equivalent) usually mounted on it. When I’m traveling I can therefore carry both cameras go all the way from 16 wide to 200 tele without switching lenses. Now and then I take a few random shots with the long lens in between travels and even less often I remember to unload the chip to Capture One and see if there’s anything on it. Here’s one such from months ago, taken from my window on a frosty morning and converted to Fuji Acros.

More Frosted Leaves
These might even qualify for the “petals on a wet black bough,” if we allow the bough is an artificial surface of dark green and the petals are actually leaves.
The Union Road leads past the Gostrey Meadow, where the flowers look spectral in their frosty coats.
The frost on the paved street looks black and white – only the berries let you know this is really a full color photograph.
Hazy, Frosty Morning
At this point we thought we were on a public footpath but were soon in a farmer’s forecourt with dogs barking all around us. We were helpfully pointed in the right direction.
By this point on the walk (started a few posts ago), we were a little lost.
Yet another candidate for the haiku project, with a sense of emptiness in the vertically protruding branches and a kind of calligraphy, as well as a strong sense of the changing season.
Another haiku project candidate from our frosty Farnham walk last week.
Frost and Haze
After we passed the stile seen at the bottom of the last picture posted, we passed into Dora’s Green, where the next several pictures were taken.
The view from a high point on the footpath we were following. You can just make out the path ahead of us in the lower portion of the picture and the frost on the trees up ahead.
More Frosted Leaves
This time in black and white.
The Frost Perched on the Town
Saw this and Joni Mitchell came to mind.
Frosty Autumn Leaves
Another thing I’m enjoying here is that the Autumn leaves are not all raked up – I can drag my feet through piles of brown leaves like I did as a kid. And they’re jewel-like when frosted.
