Frosted Glass

Very close to home would be an understatement. The outer windows from my bedroom on some very cold nights get these intricate patterns of frost on them. The inner windows, however, are clear. Opening the inner windows started creating that hole in the frost very quickly.

  2. You don't see this often on double glazed windows, but I think its's really beautiful! When the frost is really thick on the glass and forms those patterns we call them 'ijsbloemen' or 'ice flowers'.

  4. Your beautiful frosty window transports me back to childhood in Chicago. I used to melt spots on the frozen window with my fingers and thumb, making designs.

  9. When I was young we had that ice on the glasswindows every morning when waking up. I always liked it to make a whole in it with breathing. Brings back sweet memories.

  11. @Linda: thanks!

    @Marleen: I'm sure my parents would have referred to them with that term.

    @Tomas: that's an interesting way to put it!

    @Dina: I've done the same.

    @Lowell: it is my kind of weather.

    @Tanya: I often say with temperatures that low, cutting into your throat, it reminds you you're alive.

    @Karl: I've always liked seeing them on glass.

    @Luis: thanks!

    @Anna: snow in Tahiti would be unthinkable!

    @Revrunner: thanks!

    @Aimee: thank you.

    @Marianne: I've done that myself.

    @Grace: humidity I can do without!

  12. in the old farmhouse where i grew up in wisconsin, we had single pane windows. there would be heavy frost each morning on the inside of the window - of course, we'd 'draw' in it. :)

  14. I remember windows that looked like that from my childhood.

  15. My windows looked just like that a couple of weeks ago. We had a warm up since then.

  16. @Tex: when I was a child we'd open the thick inner windows and draw on the frost on the outer windows with our fingernails.

    @VP: oh, I love winter!

    @Sharon: it's something I like the look of.

    @Judy: here we're back into the deep freeze.

    @Norma: cold is a good thing!

  17. I hope we're on the upturn soon. The sun is much warmer!

  18. Now that's a good one as it shows two different influences on a frosty window.

  19. Very interesting indeed. Jack Frost doesn't visit here too often. Always a wonder. MB

  20. Brrr! I wouldn't open the inner window!

  21. Our front door is single pane and we get patterns of frost on it and it is quite beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's a beautiful photo and a sight I would actually welcome!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Ya, frosted windows always make for one good photo a winter. I have one coming soon, I bet.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Interest shot. I don't get see much of that here obviously!

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don`t like the COLD, but the photo is arty and nice:)

    ReplyDelete
  26. @Jennifer: we need winter to hold off for at least eight weeks.

    @Red: thanks!

    @MB: Jack's a permanent resident here!

    @Cheryl: cold is good for you!

    @RedPat: oddly our front door doesn't.

    @Ciel: I'll be impossible to live with once the winter ends!

    @Birdman: I look forward to it!

    @Whisk: the best season of all.

    @Lois: obviously not!

    @Gunn: thanks!

  27. You didn't have to go far to get this fabulous "Winter" capture William ... it's beautiful.

  28. LOL When I was growing up in Iowa, there were no outer and inner windows. It was not unusual to have frost two inches high on the inside of the window sill. I still can't see the beauty in that. Outside was fine, but not inside.

  30. It must have really been cold out.

    ReplyDelete
  31. It's a wonderful shot but I don't find what it represents very appealing. I'm adjusting to the cold of the Pacific Northwest but your brand is still too chilly for me!

  32. I like this ice window.
    It reminds me of the varying weather - frost and mild alternately.
    You found a great ice art.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Oh, neat! Quite a work of art on its own. I'm glad our windows aren't that frosty though!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Frost patterns are intricate and beautiful and I only wish my camera lens was capable of capturing their details.

  35. Snow and frost make for beautiful pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Very neat image! Stay warm if you can!
