Morning photo: Sparkly!

Sun, snow, ice, water …

Sometimes the air itself sparkles with cold winter frost.

FRISCO —Right around that same time the #FriFotos crew was readying its final announcement for this week’s sparkly theme, I was engrossed in shooting some sparkly scenes in the fresh snow and frost in Summit County. Especially in early winter, when there are strong temperatures contrasts between the air and various surfaces, we see an incredible formation of frost crystals that to me are more valuable than any diamonds. Along with pics from the past couple of days, I did a quick archive search to find a few more suitable shots. Now I’m looking forward to watching the sparkly #FriFotos images roll in from around the world. More info on how to join the fun is posted here.
