Frost castles

I’ve seen many different frost formations, but this was a new one for me. Rain drops froze overnight and frost grew on the drops, making tiny castles on this grass blade:

Taken at high magnification (4x) with a Canon MP-E65 lens, I blended together several takes to get more depth of field and crystal detail.

  1. These are amazing Tom. I saw some great hoar frost today that reminded me of this. I took some shots, but didn’t have the right gear with me to get nearly as close.

  2. I’ve never seen forms like these either Tom. Ice is so variable and to use a more human term…creative. One is almost always guaranteed something new with each experience. Great use of the MP-E65.
