Icy tips

The tail end of winter. The sun was shining, and felt warm on my back. But in the shade, the frost nips at fingers.

On the shady shore of Roberts Lake, the moss is covered with tiny ice crystals.

Moss, sporangia,ice, on an old log.

The ice clumps at the tip of the moss blades.

Rocks are colder: the ice covers most of the moss.

Oregon beaked moss and Douglas-fir cone.

Se nos va el invierno. Ahora el sol aparece y se siente su calor. Pero en la sombra, el frío todavía ataca nuestros dedos y nariz.
En la costa del Lago Roberts, donde los árboles esconden el sol, el musgo está cubierto de pequeños cristales de hielo.

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
