Hoar Frost
Lens: Sigma 10-20mm Camera: K20D Photo Location: Northern Canada ISO: 100 
Posted By: Pauld, 12-24-2011, 09:40 AM

Yesterday morning I awoke to thick blanket of fog and with our frigid temperatures I knew it would lead to one thing, Hoar Frost! This only happens a few times a year but when it does it is spectacular to see. I waited for the fog to lift and headed out into the frigid cold and I mean frigid. By the time I got dressed and out it was -31C. I was out for about an hour until my face was numb and my ballhead was not very happy with me. I now know that ballheads don't rotate very well in the frigid cold. Lesson learned.

Beautiful! Looks more like snow than frost on those trees.
