Cold snap

Cold snap
This leaf looks like it's covered with spun sugar. And baybee it's cold outside on this beautiful morning in Maryland. Yesterday's muddy trail is now a crunchy frozen one. I love January.
Seriously. I do.
Michelle Black's Vintage Mod action applied; old Ghostbones (now SkeletalMess) texture as well. (The same one I used on the female cardinal, below).

I love the leaf lines on the leaf. It looks very cold there, just looking at this leaf.
Great picture!

Seen a lot of frost here too the past few days. Be glad when it warms up in good Ol Mississippi.
