Zyrynology: Fahrenheit 29

This December morning was exceptionally cold in Atlanta. The air was so thick, you could cut it into thin broad slices. I got definitely spoiled with the mild Georgia climate, as this by any means was no comparison with frosty mornings in Siberia, where a spit lends on the ground frozen. My run to the office was interrupted by an incredible collage that was unfolding on the lawn right in front of my eyes. A passerby cracked a joke about me kneeling down on the icy ground at the time when every warm-blooded creature tries to stay away from cold.

Hope Ray Bradbury will forgive me for the title.

Such beautiful colours. I love how the frost makes it's way around the edges of the leaves.
I love the imaginary picture in my head of you kneeling down close to the ground to take this photo. Thank you for sharing it!
vz-nostalgia: You're very welcome, Suzanne. Got to take advantage of whatever mother nature sends to us.
The color in this image is simply irresistible. What a palette, and very nice detail, too. I'll be adding this to my likeys.
vz-nostalgia: cheers, Red Pen. Shots like these is the only benefit I see in this freezing weather. smile
i don't know how you make it, its amazing and love the colors
vz-nostalgia: "i don't know how you make it..." It's very simple, Miriam, You go minding your own business, you see things and you push the shutter button. smile
This is spectacular. The colour is very beautiful and the composition is perfect. Bravo!
vz-nostalgia: you are very kind, Mary.

I am sure Ray Bradbury wll, but the real question is...will Michael Moore? ;-) Great shot. I love the way the ice traces the outlines of the leaves.
vz-nostalgia: smile Michael Moore is as much of a thief as I am, Kathryn. Mr. Bradbury forgave him, I hope he'll do the same for me. Good to see you back on Nostalgia.

I would have to fill the freezer compartment of my fridge with leaves to be able to set up a shot like this in Bangkok, VZ...it hardly drops below 80 fahrenheit here even at night.
The leaves look rather crisp, but very colourful. Great image...I am glad you were not intimidated by the passers-by.
vz-nostalgia: You must be living in paradise, Mr. Storey. Please do fill your freezer. I can't wait to see the outcome. smile

Oh yes, VZ! Atlanta in all her glory! You gotta catch those rare days when it actually gets below freezing. Wait till you get that one day when it snows. grin

I love it.

And I see the spammer really attacked YOU this time. Good for him. You well deserve the press time. smile
vz-nostalgia: It was snowing in April of 1993, Ginnie, our first spring in America. The blooms of peaches, cherries, tulip trees...everything was covered in magic. It lasted for three days. I will never forget it.

This is a good catch. The blue tones are intriguing, especially when combined with the red accents. Unfortunately it looks a bit blurry, at least to me.
vz-nostalgia: It's blurry, Martin, because it was bloody cold! I guess I was shivering too much. smile
This is nice, but too cold too soon for mesmile
vz-nostalgia: Too cold for me too, Nigel. Can't believe I survived those long Russian winters of the past. smile

A stunning image - the colours and shapes with the little line of white frost edging them - beautiful.

vz-nostalgia: In this case, stop by often for more fun, Ingrid. smile

de belles couleurs que vient souligner le liseré blanc du gel
vz-nostalgia: Content vous l'aimez. Passez souvent pour plus d'amusement.
i am so amazed from ur work, it's just fabulous and i wish i can see such moments and capture some of it. smile)
vz-nostalgia: You're very kind. Don't be discouraged. These moments are all around you. You don't have to travel to exotic places. It might take time, but at some point you will start not only looking, but also seeing. And that's the key. smile

Whoa - thought I had missed October and Novenber for a minute! Never realised it got that cold in Atlanta - the frost gives a wonderful edge to the rich colours. Roll on the winter ;o)Well spotted. Mike
vz-nostalgia: Can't compete with nature in terms of beauty, Mike. The best part of it is it's free, up for grabs.

Great collage indeed, lucky enough that you have got your camera with you. Usually when I see something beautiful my camera is home and vice versa, when I carry it, nothing attracts my attention...
vz-nostalgia: I was sorry myself so many times for not having my camera with me, when a great opportunity reveals itself. Now my camera is always handy. I don't leave my home without it. smile
VZ check out my todays picture its from Georgia, (old Georgian Church)
It's just wonderful! I have it in my likey's right now! Regards, Laurence
vz-nostalgia: You have good taste, Laurence smile Cheers.
Sumptuous colours: this is lovely!
vz-nostalgia: smile, Dave.
Your frozen leaves are more colourful than mine - I'm jealous! Lovely shot.
vz-nostalgia: Don't be jealous, Ms. Linda. The winter has not started yet. So many frosted mornings are ahead. smile
A stunning shot VZ. It's so vivid inspite of being frozen.
vz-nostalgia: My pleasure, pixie.

The colours are very appealing. An excellent picture.
vz-nostalgia: Yep, it all is about the color here. Some pictures just don't work in monochrome.
This is absolutely gorgeous Viktor. I am surprised you made it to work at all smile
vz-nostalgia: How in teh world you've managed to burrow yourself that far into Nostalgia archive, Edward? smile
