This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge theme is the season of winter. Remember you can click on each photo below for a larger view. If you like what you see, feel free to subscribe and receive nature photography updates a few times a week.

Winter in San Diego is quite different from most places in the US. It’s definitely milder but by living inland a bit (about 15 miles from the shore, past the first set of big hills), I get to enjoy more drastic changes in temperature than if I lived right by the coast. So while I can enjoy warm temperatures of 70 to 80 degrees on any given winter day, the winter nights are chilly, usually in the low 30s to 40s, and frost pays us a surprise visit many nights a winter.

I could brag and show you pictures of the warm blue skies and bold flowers we enjoy in the winter, but instead I’ll give you a taste of the cold aspect of winter here. Enjoy!

You’ll notice the frost here is more delicate and looks like a thin layer of sugar coating.

Winter in San Diego also means beautiful sunrises.

    Love those frosty images, they are helping to cool me off on this hot and muggy day! And the sunrise/ sunset photos are stunning!

      Thank you, I used them to cool off here too. Most summer sunrises and sunsets aren’t very memorable, so winter is the season I’m looking forward to so I can photograph nice ones.

  6. The first one is beautiful!
