Blue window frost_StaatsWhen the temperature is -26 degrees, the places that I will point my camera for interesting photographs becomes much more limited.  As our multiple days of subzero temperatures bottomed out, I found myself inside looking out, through the beautiful patterns of frost on one of the windows.  Intricate and fascinating, it was back-lit by a neighbor’s light in the distance.  I found myself going from one side of the window to the next looking for patterns that would show the detail.  And when I stepped back to see the pattern in full, it reminded me of the delicateness of a green fern.  Within a few days our temperatures moderated and the winter beauty on this window evaporated by the welcome sun.
