2013 12-30 Jack Frost by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

When you look closely at the amazing details of a frosty window it’s not hard to understand why someone chose to personify the creator under the name of Jack Frost. Ever since I was a child, I’ve been fascinated by the seemingly random yet ordered patterns of the kind seen in this photo.

Unfortunately, due to improved window glazing, this kind of window frost is less often seen. But fortunately my son and his family live in a venerable older home in St. Paul, MN. They may not appreciate the heating bills but I appreciate the beauty of Jack Frost’s art.
