  1. Nice shots. It’s difficult to get good detail on frost crystals. That second one has very fine details, indeed.

    • Thank you, Emilio…especially difficult when out on the trail, too, with the sun being so bright, kneeling/scrunching down into the pathway, trying like hell to keep the camera still…and here we are…ten images later with only three passable/decent ones.

  4. Lovely shots Scott, it must be chilly in your part of the world. It turned cold here on Tuesday and we’ve had the first snow up north and in Scotland, but no proper frost here in Cambridge yet.

    • Thank you, Finn…and these photos were taken almost two weeks ago when it was a bit cooler here in the SLC area, even had a bit of snow for two days…but the photos are actually from out on the trail in the mountains, somewhere around 9,000 feet/2,740 meters…

  5. The second one is astonishing. Quite a bit beyond passable. Looks like something growing white hairs.

    • Thank you, Gunta…it is crazy how the crystals form like that. I think you might have visited at least one of the posts, but if you go back to December of last year in my archives, you can see some other pretty cool crystals on the 13th, 16th, and 29th…kinda fascinating. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. I like those frost needles, but they’re hard to find and even harder to get a good shot of-especially when the sun is trying to melt them. But, you know all of that now.

    • Thank you, Allen…they can be hard to photograph, especially when they’re melting. I don’t think the ones in the above photo would last too much longer…the sun had just risen over the trees and I don’t think these had been exposed but just for a few minutes. As I mentioned to Gunta above, there are some other photos of crystals back in my December 2011 archives…some on pine needles, too…you might enjoy them….

  8. The ice crystals in that second shot are amazing. That was a hard frost!

    October 29, 2012 at 12:57 pm

    • Thank you, Andy…I’m sure it was a pretty hard frost, too…it was probably rather cold way up in the mountains…somewhere between 2,700 and 2,800 meters….

  9. The ice crystals almost look furry. Fantastic capture Scott.

    • They sure do…thank you, Nancy.

  10. Very nice shots! I’ve been waiting for frost like that but it hasn’t happened here yet.

    October 30, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    • Thank you, Terry…you probably don’t have too much of a wait ahead of you.
