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

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.

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

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.

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.

Stunning series Mark, and so fascinating to see the frost forming in this way.
Do like the splash of colour in #3, but #9 and #10 my favourites (reminding me of a preying mantice!)

We had similar frost from a couple of days of freezing fog and agree; don't think I've seen its like before and a real winter wonderland.
I got your wish for a bit of sunshine, but it beat me with my camera by an hour and had melted most of the good stuff before I got out there

A heartwarming response. Thank you all. I just wish I could use some of that warmth to heat my house. This weather is costing me a fortune in heating and with the recent rocketing price of oil, I hate to think what my next tankful is going to cost me .

Specific points.

Maewpa. 25 degrees sounds pretty good to me at the moment!.       

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

Roy. We had about 3-4 inches of snow here the weekend before last, but due to subsequent rain and general evaporation it has all gone now. Mind you, where the snow was hard packed it has left sheets of slippery ice. While I was out taking these photos, I slipped and fell flat on my back, banging my head hard on the ground. My camera (+ flashgun) bounced off my chest as I landed and clattered onto the ground. Fortunately, it survived -- and there was no damage to my head either externally or internally (well, you can't damage cotton wool ), and the only after effect is a stiff neck due to, I guess, mild whiplash. But it was worth it; I don't remember ever seeing frost quite as dramatic as this in many years. How we suffer for our art .
