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.
I love this, I find it beautiful.ReplyDelete
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'.ReplyDelete
To not get angry, let you see a little (just kidding).ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Cute. I haven't had that problem for awhile. And hope to never have it again! :) Brrrrrr!ReplyDelete
makes you not want to crawl out of bed!ReplyDelete
How beautiful, ice crystals !ReplyDelete
These days, your photos are very white ... unlike mine !ReplyDelete
I love this - such beautiful patternsReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
Our windows fog up too William.. with the humidity :) Your icy windows look much prettier.ReplyDelete
@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.
@Anna: snow in Tahiti would be unthinkable!
@Aimee: thank you.
@Marianne: I've done that myself.
@Grace: humidity I can do without!
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. :)ReplyDelete
Your beautiful winter pictures are very helpful: I like much more our winter looking at the effects of yours!ReplyDelete
I remember windows that looked like that from my childhood.ReplyDelete
My windows looked just like that a couple of weeks ago. We had a warm up since then.ReplyDelete
Beautiful...but too cold!ReplyDelete
@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.ReplyDelete
@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!
I hope we're on the upturn soon. The sun is much warmer!ReplyDelete
Now that's a good one as it shows two different influences on a frosty window.ReplyDelete
Very interesting indeed. Jack Frost doesn't visit here too often. Always a wonder. MBReplyDelete
Brrr! I wouldn't open the inner window!ReplyDelete
Our front door is single pane and we get patterns of frost on it and it is quite beautiful.ReplyDelete
That's a beautiful photo and a sight I would actually welcome!ReplyDelete
Ya, frosted windows always make for one good photo a winter. I have one coming soon, I bet.ReplyDelete
Interest shot. I don't get see much of that here obviously!ReplyDelete
I don`t like the COLD, but the photo is arty and nice:)ReplyDelete
@Jennifer: we need winter to hold off for at least eight weeks.ReplyDelete
@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!
You didn't have to go far to get this fabulous "Winter" capture William ... it's beautiful.ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
awesome. i have not see something like that in years. i guess it never get that cold around here. Canada is super cool like that. thanks for sharing. you are so lucky. ( :ReplyDelete
It must have really been cold out.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
I like this ice window.ReplyDelete
It reminds me of the varying weather - frost and mild alternately.
You found a great ice art.
Oh, neat! Quite a work of art on its own. I'm glad our windows aren't that frosty though!ReplyDelete
Frost patterns are intricate and beautiful and I only wish my camera lens was capable of capturing their details.ReplyDelete
Frost makes lovely patterns.ReplyDelete
Snow and frost make for beautiful pictures.ReplyDelete
Very neat image! Stay warm if you can!ReplyDelete
There is a beautiful artistic quality to this photo!ReplyDelete
An impressionist scene, for sure.ReplyDelete
Wonderful! I haven't seen any frost on the windows overhere for many years.ReplyDelete
@Mari: I've seen that on windows before.
@Beth: we can get deep colds here.
@Randy: it was.
@Kay: winter rules!
@LDP: we can expect it here.ReplyDelete
@Beatrice: I got lucky.
@EG: it does indeed.
@Shelly: I agree.
@Linda: thank you!
@Kate: I thought so!
@Jan: we see it when it gets down below minus twenty when frost becomes visible on windows and metal.
