Hoar Frost - Williamston

It has been a really mild winter. Yesterday, I was working in the yard wearing jeans and a sweatshirt. Normally this time of year, I would need several layers. It has been weird to have so little snow cover. We may not have snow, but this morning, everything was covered in white. It is one of the wonders of winter called a hoar frost. When I realized it, I put the macro lens on my camera, and went outside to take pictures.

It is beautiful to watch the ice crystals sparkle in the sunlight. Of course, what makes it beautiful also makes it fleeting. I guess the fleeting beauty is what makes it so magical. If you aren't paying attention, you will miss it.

Old Town Lansing

Here are a few more photos from my stroll along the Grand River. This is how Old Town looks from the river walk.
