Another picture from my holiday in december 2006.
We went out for a walk and I saw these frosted oak leaves.I like the way autumn and winter are captured in one scenery.

Here are some facts about oaks from the internet:

The term oak can be used as part of the common name of any of several hundred species of trees and shrubs in the genus Quercus, and some related genera, notably Cyclobalanopsis and Lithocarpus. The genus is native to the northern hemisphere, and includes deciduous and evergreen species extending from cold latitudes to tropical Asia and the Americas.

Oaks have spirally arranged leaves, with a lobed margin in many species; some have serrated leaves or entire leaves with a smooth margin. The flowers are catkins, produced in spring. The fruit is a nut called an acorn, borne in a cup-like structure known as a cupule; each acorn contains one seed (rarely two or three) and takes 6-18 months to mature, depending on species.

Hi Nel, very nice frost composition, lovely delicate colors, very well done, have a nice week end, ciao Silvio

Hoi Nel,
Heb je deze foto nog bewerkt? Er zit zo weinig kleur in. Niet dat ik het lelijk vind, ik vind het juist prachtig. Het detail is echt super en de sfeer perfect.

Los tonos de las Hojas son preciosos, buenos detalles y compo... saludos Nel

Hello Nel,
Lovely framing of this image of winter!
The colours are totally muted by the frost, and the light sparkling in the ice crystals...
A different but interesting view on nature!

Hi Nel,
Little chef d'oeuvre. Very humble, but so beautiful.
Best regards

Hello Nel,
I like this texture, I can almost feel them. Details are very good in a nice POV and exposure. Simple but very nice :) Thanks,

Hi Nel,
very nice close up. You filled your canvas very well, the crop and frame work very nice.
Nice sharp details, the frost does adds very nice texture to the leafes.
