When the fog freezes in the trees - Actifit: December 21 2019

in #actifit2 years ago (edited)

I woke this morning to hoar frost, which is a type of frost that creates tiny spike-like icicles on absolutely everything — every tiny twig. It often happens here when we have fog during cold weather.

It is really breathtaking to see. I only wish I had a real camera. The pictures I will share from my trip to the park with my dog, which I took with my smart phone, do not do it justice at all. It is as if fairies have flown over and turned everything a magical silver white.



I will do some editing and post some more tomorrow for #sublimesunday.

Thank you for visiting my blog!

I like the magic of nature in every season. But frost has its unique characteristics :-)


It is photographed by mobile :-)

Nice job! That is beautiful. What kind of phone do you have?

I have XIAOMI REDMI 6. In manual camera setup, I set the focus as low as possible

Never knew there was a word for it. It looks nice but I am happy we do not have the frost here today. Merry days to you. 💕

Thank you, @wakeupkitty!

Thank you so much, @theluvbug!

Hoar frost is so pretty but can create havoc from downed power lines and trees to black ice on the roadways. Beautiful pictures BTW. Great job on your 17001 @actifit steps! Have a wonderful evening😽

Thanks, @elizabethbit! I’m surprised to hear that hoar frost can bring down power lines. I think of it as so light, like fuzz. But I do remember seeing pictures of really thick hoar frost, so that does make sense!

I guess I was tired when I posted my comment; I've seen hoar frost that ends up transitioning into what we call a silver thaw and that is what brings the power lines down. I had a long day yesterday and was tired, lol. Have a wonderful night.

Oh, no worries at all. It actually made me think about it and I realized that it's probably not just pretty! All of those icicles would definitely get heavy. I actually got really interested in this phenomenon after making that post, and wrote another called "What Causes Hoarfrost?" I found some amazing pictures on Pixabay to supplement my own!
