I got up early this morning and strode out to catch the frost on the ground. I had a feeling it might be beautiful but it was like stepping onto another planet. A metallic frost clinging in vertical formations onto every blade of grass; an etherial mist hovering halfway across the reservoir gradually revealing the landscape beneath. Burnished greys and silver blues blending into grouse coloured earth. Despite the coolness of the chroma I found it strangely warm and sensuous with the strong sun lurking behind giving a glimpse of crystal blue high in the atmosphere above.
