For the first time in ages, I managed to get out and have some fun with my camera this week, taking random images of whatever I came across. Lying outside our house was this pile of frost-covered leaves and I thought it looked very seasonal.
The image was taken with quite a tight aperture. While editing I reduced the vibrance and this has given it more of a silver hue.
Do you agree with me that it’s a very seasonal image? What stands out for you, the leaves or the frost? Please leave a comment below.

We saw our first frost yesterday as we went for an early walk in the park. I do love this time of year #MySundayPhoto
Very seasonal indeed! It’s all about the frost for me. I think we’ve had five or six frosts already, which is probably as many as we had for the whole of last winter.
This is a really beautiful photo John. I love the silver hue – it really does sum up the season.
Very kind words Victoria, all the more so coming from someone who knows here way around a camera so well!
We had our first frost the other day. I love frosty mornings…but I hate wet mornings
Thank you for linking up
Oh give me frost over rain any day. Thanks for hosting #MySundayPhoto
The frost for me, I love frosty mornings, I am thinking and hoping we are going to have a cold and frosty winter this year. Last year’s was so wet and soggy such a disappointment and all those poor people flooded. So give me frost any day. Beautiful shot and lets hope its a sign of things to come x
Oh we need a few harsh frosts. It’s what nature intended! I quite agree last year was so wet and soggy.
Stunning photo – there is something extra special about that first blanketing of frost.
The first blanket of frost is to be admired isn’t it?
We had ours a couple of weeks ago, it makes everything look so pretty. Love the way you capture the edges of the leaves.
The edges of the leaves do stand out don’t they? Thanks for commenting Fiona.
Eek! Winter is coming!
I do like frosty mornings as long as I don’t have to go out in them x
Oh autumn has well and truly gone hasn’t it? Winter is here and I think this photo shows it.
Crunchy leaves with frost is one of my favourite things! Fab photo! #mysundayphoto
Can’t beat walking through some crunchy leaves.
I love how frost makes everyone so pretty…even though it’s freezing. We’ve had some snow too but it wasn’t enough to play in!
Strange isn’t it, but frost does make things stand out so much more.
I love the frost on the leaves and I think it’s the frost that stands out #MySundayPhoto
The frost makes the veins in the leaves stand out doesn’t it?
Love the tones, you can almost feel the crunch #MySundayPhoto
Hadn’t thought of it like that but love the idea that you can hear the crunch.
Autumnal frosty leaves, definitely winds the award for the most seasonal photo yet! Love the shimmeringb of the silvery frost #MySundayPhoto
So kind of you to say so. Glad you liked the image.
We love crunchy leaves covered in frost! Yet to spot any here as it’s been so wet! Great piccy! #MySundayPhoto
SHame it’s been so wet! I’m sure you’ll get your chance to see some frosty leaves soon.
A perfect photo for this time of year. I love how pretty the leaves look with a layer of frost coating them 🙂
The frost does add to the pic deosn’t it? Thanks for commenting.
Hi John, just looking at photos of frost makes me shiver. We won’t see any here until at least January (I hope). What stands out for me most about your photo is the way the frost highlights the veins of the leaves, reminding me of those wax crayon rub pictures children make.
Ha ha, yes, I imagine frost isn’t too much of an issue in Greece. Love the observation about the veins in the leaves.
