Hoar Frost

The morning of January twenty-second was minus three degrees. While out walking the dogs I came across hoar frost in several locations around the village. The feathery, fern-like ice crystals were beautiful and intriguing. If it hadn't been so cold I would have spent more time photographing and examining them.
