The Frosted Prairie




This morning the prairie was arrayed in a coating of rime-ice. Fences, plants, weeds, spider webs— all were coated with a delicate tracery of frosty filigree. It didn't last long, of course, but for a while just after dawn it made the plains a foggy wonderland.

Breathtaking!! During the winter in northern Germany, I'd always hope for mornings like this, and occasionally we'd be rewarded with a frosty wonderland. The transience of the delicate crystals always makes me appreciate them that much more.

Beautiful photos; I especially like the one of the web.

Great pictures. Sounds like it might be a little cold for me, though. It's chilly here but nowhere near what it is there.
