Small Frosty Stuff

I won’t waffle too much, just post a few pictures of frost and snow flakes.  The frost here can be deeper than snow back home given a good length of time with low wind. As well as snow falling or blowing and adding to the mass of the ice, the shelf actually grow upwards itself – frost grows on every surface and is then covered by snow, blown away to land somewhere else or just keeps on building up.

Get up close and you can see the frosty, fractal-like Christmas trees twinkling in the light.

Anyway, I suppose this is me trying to be arty, just wish I had a proper macro lense!

I was particularly chuffed to see perfect snow-flakes. We get plenty of snow in the North of England but it’s more likely to be like fluffy white cornflakes as opposed to the classic star-like snow flakes you see on Christmas cards. Some of the pics are frost that has then been snowed on – leaving little snowflakes wedged in like tiny little ninja stars have been thrown into it!
