a touch of frost

I am sooo not a morning person. On those rare occasions when I am up early, I really savour the scene, the quiet and the light (OK, after a bit of grumbling). Today was one of those days. It wasn't even that early when I got up today - 8:30. But on a Sunday, and a day when everyone else was soaking up an extra hour of sleep, it felt very early. I bundled myself and my wee dog up and we headed out on a walk. The scene was breathtaking. Crisp autumn air and everything in sight was kissed by frost. Autumn is my favourite season. There is beauty everywhere, and watching the colours change and mellow everyday fills me with wonder. These shots are from my next door neighbour's front garden in Tweed. Each shot makes me think how amazing it would be to capture this beauty in a fabric or wallpaper design. And the possible paint colours are endless.
