"Frosty Oak"

Photo of a magical wintry scene featuring a frosty old oak tree.

Wintry weather has a way of making ordinary scenes come to life. Add a little snow or frost and the dull colors that usually prevail at this time of year are magically transformed into the stark colors of winter.

Photographer Hanspeter Klasser of Karlsbad, Germany captured this gorgeous scene of a stately oak standing alongside a frost-covered field on a morning that would surely make old man winter quite proud of his handiwork. Winter snowfalls sure make for some outstanding photographic opportunities, but today's picture proves that a heavy layer of frost and ice can be just as beautiful and intriguing.

I think this is such a beautiful photo of a Wintry Wonderland. A spectacular sight!
