Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
Some snowflake-like frost crystals on a foxtail head:
At last it’s gotten cold enough for some pretty frost – it got down to 11 deg F for these crystals.
Oh my goodness, Tom…. You have surpassed yourself with this extraordinary photo !!
Thanks – happy you like it. These are so hard to do!
there is something special about these crystals,
they attract everyone towards them again and again and again.
they look brilliant.
Those bright edges draw me back every time – thanks for the kind words.
Oh this is just beautiful. From where I am siting in the heat of an Aussie summer, that looks very inviting indeed.
Thanks! Cold is inviting, though an acquired taste – makes me feel more alive, at least for a the first couple of hours!
Exxtremely impressed with your frost crystals, lovely!
Thanks – the happy result of a perfect frosty morning.
Thanks for stopping in and commenting. I stopped by you blog, Lots of pretty things – where are you from in New England?
A stunning capture.
Thanks again, David!
It’s really nature that’s amazing, not the photograph!
it is always a spectacle 🙂
Thanks as always, Joshi!
That’s not my part of photography at all, but i must admit, that you are a master in it!
I stopped by your blog – your work *is* very different from mine, but interesting and compelling. Thanks for commenting…
Oh boy, Tom. These are so cool. They look like Christmas Tree ornaments. I just posted some ice but nowhere near as pretty as these.
Thanks, Steve. I have a bunch more, but they are more complicated, and this one has simplicity going for it.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! Haven’t seen anything like this before. How magnified are they?
Not that much, 2x or 3x – they were pretty big, as frost crystals go. Thanks so much, Anita.
how delicate and wondrous! that’s why i just love winter. behold its beauty…
So pretty, pretty, pretty…..
