Jeanette said: "I was surprised and delighted to win the Natural Abstract category with Frost Feathers. Most of my photography is done with a DSLR and macro lens, but this was taken with a compact camera, leaning out of an upper window to photograph the car roof beneath.

"
I love the challenges of nature photography because in nature most things are transient and nothing is more transient than frost. As the sun rises there's a brief moment when there is sufficient light to take a decent photograph before the temperature rises and the frost melts. A few minutes after I captured this image, the striking pattern was gone."
