Fem2008. If you had said that (grey ice) about #10 I might have agreed with you, but I think #9 is about right.


Mark,

No, I did mean #9. I am looking at it using my CRT at home right now and it looks just fine. I was looking at it using an LCD monitor before and, though calibrated, the slightest viewing angle shift can result in different brightness appearance. I should have been more careful.

Sorry Mark. My Fault.

Magnificent photos and a great disply of geometry in Nature.
Oh not to be England now that winter's here - unless you're a photographer in which case... these show why.

Pretty pretty. I hope we get some ice like that. The last sort of ice storm we had was years ago.

It wasn't even close to an ice storm -- not like the ones in the USA, which I believe form from freezing rain and are extremely unpleasant. This was just very delicate frost. Each spike is built up over a period of hours from mist that freezes onto the twigs or wire. The spikes are small (max 2cm) and very very delicate -- the slightest touch or even a blow of air and they're gone.

#13 Closer shot of the same fence. 100mm macro


#14 Frosted icicle. The lower part of an icicle hanging from the roof of my chicken shed. 100mm macro


#15 The tip of the same icicle. Min 35-70 f/4 with reversed Helios 44M


#16 Frosted silver Birch tree in my garden. CZ24-70


#17 Frosted twig. 100mm macro


#18 Frosted willow branches. 100mm macro


#19 Frost crystals on glass. Each 'strand' is about 3-5 mm across. Min 35-70 f/4 with reversed Helios 44M

Very nice - though, of course, sun might have evaporated them away before you got to them ...
