The first frost.



Yesterday morning we woke up to the first frost of this year.

It wasn’t a particularly heavy frost. Just heavy enough to sharpen the edges of everything it touched, and necessitate a good twenty minute stint of car-defrosting before we could set off on our morning walk.

It was tricky to choose between taking a flask of tea out with me to keep my hands warm, or leaving my hands free for my camera, so that I could capture the frost in all its glory.

Guess which I chose?

    Feeling chilly just looking at these pictures! Beautiful photography.

    I wonder if the snow’s on its way. As long as it doesn’t arrive on 6th February and mess up my flight to the sun! I desperately need to see some rays!!

    Gorgeous photos. Frosty morning are my favourite :)

  • Hebe

    I don’t know about yours but my pup goes MENTAL when it’s frosty – I think it’s that he loves the cold, crunchy ground under his paws! So cute.
    Also, I’m glad you chose the camera over the flask because these photographs are so beautiful!

    • Rosie

      Haha, how cute! Teddy doesn’t really bother about the frost too much, but goes insane in the snow! It sends him completely hyper- even more hyper than he is normally!

  • Setarra

    Oh wow, these photos are magical! What a beautiful frosty sight to wake up to :)

  • Sara

    Such pretty photos! Frost kind of makes everything look magical.
    Back home frost usually shows up in October and then by late November we have heaps of snow.. can’t say I miss that much.

  • Heidi-Elizabeth

    Oh I love this time of year, such beautiful photographs!
    We went on a frosty, foggy walk early this morning, it was beautiful.

  • Deenie

    These photos are gorgeous! Looks like something from a Christmas card! Looks like you’ve had a nice walk, I love the sheep haha :)

  • Louisa

    I love the pictures of the holly. There’s something about leaves made crisp by frost that is so beautiful!

  • tasha

    These images are beautiful! It really was nippy!

  • Justine

  • Ché Dyer

    Such gorgeous snaps! Something about winter morning air that makes everything sharper and crisp!

  • Elle

    I know most people hate the first frost as it’s a sign of all the chilly days to come … but I think it’s so beautiful. There’s something magical about it. Although, I can’t believe you are just getting your first frost!!! I think ours came in October!


  • Liesa

    Such beautiful photos, Rosie! Would it be mean to say I’m glad you choose this option over keeping your hands warm? haha. xx

    • Rosie

      Haha, not at all! I’m glad I chose camera over warmth too ;)

  • Sorcha

    I love the frost and snow – it makes everything look so beautiful! Especially in the countryside.

    I definitely would have chosen the camera over the tea too.

  • Hannah

    These photo are beautiful!! I love how beautiful the frost has made the whole landscape look – the second and third from the bottom are my favourites :) Hannah xx

  • Anna

    These are so stunning and it’s almost as I can feel you being out there in the cold, fresh air with your camera in your hands! It would be so easy for me to lazy inside, but not for you darling Rosie! You made the best of it!! They are gorgeous.

  • Jane

    The weather has definitely taken a chilly turn! I wonder if it’ll snow soon? Such pretty photos x

  • Amy at Ms. Toody Goo Shoes

    It looks so lovely where you live, Rosie. Since this was your first frost, I assume it doesn’t ever get really cold?

    • Rosie

      This winter has been crazy mild so far. Usually we get snow around this time of year, and it gets cold enough that the pond outside our house freezes right over for weeks on end. Don’t think we’ve dipped down into minus figures once this year though, it’s really weird!

  • Christina

    Gorgeous pics, something quick magical about them. I love early mornings and the cold air!

  • Chelsea

    Awesome photos. I haven’t been out much to capture the winter beauty, I guess because I’m a big fan of spring / summer. But looking at your photos and a few others today I’m planning some trips soon. I’ll just have to get the gloves out and back pack for my flask too!

    P.S I always feel sorry for the sheep being out in this weather, I just want to put them in a stable and cuddle with them.

  • Melodie

    I love the first frost in the country… your photos are really beautiful Rosie, i wish i could see that with my own eyes!

  • Leah June

    So gorgeous!

  • Jamie

    The photo of Teddy watching the sheep is just oh so precious! What a sweet pup.

  • amanda

    ohhhh damn, these photos are seriously gorgeous.

  • Katie Albury

    Amazing photographs…you capture detail beautifully.

    YAY this frost was so stunning. I’m so looking forward to early morning runs in the frost and the snow, it’s such a beautiful connection with nature x
