Hoar Frost

I always get excited when we have a day with hoar frost - it is a rare phenomenon. And a photographer's dream as the white, frosty needles make great macro images. Unfortunately it was a windy morning but I managed to get a few close-ups and a few landscape shots from this winter wonderland. 
Here is an explanation from wikipedia:
Hoar frost, white frost or rime is the tiny solid deposition of water vapor from saturated air which occurs when the temperature of the surfaces is below freezing point.

Enjoy, Susanne
