I love your 'frost art', Katy! Some of them
would look perfect etched on crystal goblets or
fancy entry doors. Nature is such an amazing
artist and you catch these with such clarity
and detail! Just beautiful! Congratulations on
your Blue!

Thanks Gil and HappySnappy!

This ice 'scorpion' is still lurking between the panes of glass today, I wonder if he's gotten bigger or smaller?

Thanks Ivan, Persianeye, Julia, John, Claire, Heidrun, Michal and Larisa!

Persianeye, I went back and checked my temperature records for the exact time I took this photo, and it had warmed to -35 by then. Nice daytime warmup!

Hey John, I looked for sunshine for the day, but I blinked and missed it! So yeah, it was -57 in the shade! :)

I like your thoughts of the Phoenix Michal!

Extremes of weather, elevation, daylight hours, isolation, flora and fauna, nothing in Nature is insignificant.I have a Davis Vantage Pro weather station, uploading to Wunderground, (Turks on the Tundra) the National Weather Service, the Citizen Weather Observation Program and MADIS (Meteorological Assimilation Data Ingest System).
