Diamonds on Autumn Leaves

I parked my bike. Brrr ... my nose felt icy cold. And my fingers too. How could I forget my gloves?! Suddenly I saw the sun shining on the dry autumn leaves at my feet. I forgot the cold. Wow: thousand of tiny sparkles like little diamonds on the oak leaves. How beautiful!

IJskristallen
Ik parkeerde ik mijn fiets achter het huis. Mijn neus was ijskoud. Mijn handen ook. Hoe kon ik mijn handschoenen vergeten! Opeens zag ik de zon schijnen op de dorre herfstbladeren aan mijn voeten. Op slag vergat ik de kou. De zonnestralen toverde duizenden kleine schitteringen op de ijskristallen, langs de rand van de eikenbladeren. Hoe mooi!



 
So hard to catch the little sparkles with my lens. I also made a little video. But ... I failed. You can hardly see the sparkles. If you've never seen small ice crystals in the sun ... it is breathtaking!

IJskristallen zijn mooi
Zo moeilijk om de kleine schitteringen te vangen met mijn lens. Ik maakte ook een kleine video. Maar nee ... ik faalde. Je kan de fonkeling bijna niet zien. Maar ik verzeker je, als je nog nooit kleine ijskristallen in de zon hebt gezien ... het is heel adembenemend mooi!


Brrr ... still have cold hands  ๐Ÿ‘
