Hoarfrost is such a pretty, fleeting thing in the winter... I wish photos could capture the way it sparkles!
On some winter morning, white ice crystals form on the ground or attached to exposed objects such as branches, wires or leaves. They form on cold, clear nights when conditions are such that heat radiates out to the open sky faster than it can be replaced from nearby sources such as wind or warm objects. As soon as the sun hits them, they disappear.
