H/ Alphabe-Thursday

Hoar frost on seed pods

Hoar frost is a a kind of frost that looks feathery.  In case you are wondering, we have not had weather cold enough for this to happen yet this year. I took these photos last February.

Hoar frost on dried  teasels

Water vapour in heavily saturated air condenses slowly into interlocking crystals.

Actually we had hoar frost the other day . It is said about the manna in the desert that it looked like hoar frost so that is good to know .

Incredible detail in the frost. Great photos.

I learn so much through all these blogs! "Hoar frost," huh? Yup, we get some of that in Hartford but I never thought to give it a name.

Jama said...

These are so pretty! you captured the details so well.

Andrea said...

Of course i haven't seen these in real life, so thank you. Even snow i've just seen once only. But i am not really that fascinated with snow, it is autumn which makes me feel so deprived. haha!

Francisca said...

Simply beautiful. Beautiful. That second photo I could stare at for a long time. And I needed to learn the word HOAR ice... maybe now you'll find it on my blog one day, EG. :-D

Such beautiful pictures. If we get a hoar frost, I will go and look at the plants instead of staying in the warm.

You captured the detail beautifully!

Jenny said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I've heard that phrase before but was always too lazy to look up what it meant.

I've visualized a few things (some not so savory) as to what it meant, but the true meaning of the word is so much lovelier than I could have imagined.

Thanks for a wonderful, informative and beautiful link to Alphabe-Thursday!

A+

Viola said...

Fantastic photos! I love the frost, the rime on the photos! :)

Tina said...

Wow. Just wow. You are amazingly talented. Thanks for sharing your work with us!

Genie said...

In this part of the country we get a similar icing which we call Rhine ice. It is so beautiful...when the trees on the mountains have it hanging from them it is like you are walking into a magical world. For a Floridian it is truly a sight to behold. These shots are so very beautiful. The second one is amazing.
