Frost On Peeling Paint

Rain and more rain is (as I’m sure you’d agree if you live in the UK) how to describe this winter. Where have all the bright, blue-skied days and heavy frosts gone? Where is the the freezing cold to wrap-up warm against?

I’m sure many people would not mind missing the cold weather – but without the cold there can be no frost – no brief and sparkling world that lasts only until the sun pushes back the shadows and warms the earth once more.

This was the type of morning when I took this photograph a few years ago.

Decay is eminently photographic in any situation, but suspended frost gives it the impression of a world under the spell of a tyrannical ice queen – beautiful to look at, cold to the touch.
