Caption: Looks to me like tiny fireworks... frozen in time. I had to catch this quickly this morning, as the temperatures 'warmed' and they disappeared from between panes of glass.

Beautiful frost designs. I've always been intrigued by the way frost grows and swirls like that. It's almost magical.

Well done and 10 & Faves on your Frosty "Fire n Ice" set. Most of us in the lower half of the lower 48 would rarely get a chance to see such artwork like this. Thanks for sharing. Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Thank you Linda, Andras, SkylaneDriver and Peter.

SkylaneDriver, they are growing between the two panes of (sealed) thermal glass, in our patio door. All out other windows are triple pane, and this double pane glass is the only one that 'grows' these. Must be a tiny bit of moisture trapped inside, and it shows up as these frosty creations when it gets down to -40 or colder.

Love those frosty photos. Did I ever tell you about the time I almost set my kitchen on fire trying to get those? Well it was real cold and I had the front storm door open a bit, to make sure that it stayed cold. But there wasn't quite enough humidity in the house. So I put the tea kettle on the stove. Now we were cooking! I became so engrossed in the photography that the tea kettle boiled dry. Guess what happens to an empty tea kettle sitting on a burner turned to high...I had to buy my wife a new kettle after that.
