Favourite Foto for Texture Tuesday

This week's Texture Tuesday challenge is very simple - just to link up with our favourite photo that has been layered with any of Kim Klassen's beautiful textures.
I took some pictures of the amazing hoar frost we experienced here last Winter, and this one, I think, is my favourite.  It really does look very unreal and is a photo of the top of a Devon bank, the dried ferns were everywhere, but I honestly don't know what the straight plant is that had been frosted, probably what was left of some dock.  The whole scene was really magical.
I played with Layers in Photoshop Elements, and used Kim's Textures Silence and Start, using both blend mode on soft light with the opacity at 100%.  Amazingly simple, and I love what happened, especially to the sky!
Please do click on the Teacup opposite to see what the other people have submitted for this Texture Tuesday.
Till next time ...........

Made me shiver, but very beautiful. Like the transformation. Happy Tuesday (although now it is Wednesday..I'm kind of late getting around to the different Texture Tuesdays).
