Default Hoarfrost

Our damp East Tennessee climate and frequent temperature fluctuations can make for some fascinating fog and frost formations. We recently had a few days of (for us) unusually cold mornings and typically high humidity. Here are some of the resulting hoarfrost patterns:

A large field-grown Black Cherry tree with an unusual "weeping" habit, accented by the frost-coat.

And finally the warm sun melting the frost and evaporating the cold fog...

Man I love all of these photos. The white of the trees contrasting with the blue of the sky is awesome. Very well done.

Hey Mole blue skies and frost on trees, not your normal stuff, I like the shots, the first 2 are my favorite. I just wish we had some blue skies here, looks like the gray of winter is here to stay for us

Awesome shots! We've had some frosty mornings (unusual for us, its often cold enough but not usually humid enough) but they've been during the week so the most I see of it is what I scape off my windshield before dawn on my way to work. I love these shots!

Sumx - You are too kind!

Hans - Hope & pray you are surviving the cold and damp, and that blue skies come back to you soon!

Harriet - Thanks so much - glad you enjoyed these. Was very glad that this happened on a day when I was not working, and so had more time to enjoy...
