Hoar Frost/Top Shot

Hoar frost on fence and weeds

Some days winter can be incredibly beautiful! Hoar frost occurs on cold, clear nights when the air is warmer than whatever it touches.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

You're very talented with a camera. What's "Hoar" frost? Does it differ from ordinary frost?

Kathy said...

I often wondered what hoar frost was. Thanks for the enlightenment.

I knew of it but never what constituted hoar frost. Hmm...

It is very beautiful and looks very cold. We are having such a mild winter this year---no heavy frost at all. Well, just rain. MB

Pamela Gordon said...

Very pretty shot EG. We haven't had many hoar frosts here this year.

I have some hoar frost on part of my brick wall right now!

You do give winter a pretty face! Looks a vast expanse of white wilderness with a wee fence trying to hole it back before it engulfs the whole world!

Lovely photo!!

Randy said...

Nice composition.

Dana said...

So pretty!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Gorgeous photo! It is both soft and harsh at the same time, showing light and shadow, colour yet a hint of black and white. It would work well as fabric artwork too.

Stephanie said...

I love this one! This would look nice on a canvas.

Jen @ Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Wow, what a lovely shot...

We get so few opportunities to actually see hoar frost...it's my fav.

I'm thinking that the kind of frost you are describing is rare here in Virginia.
