Ice Crystals in January 2010

Click on picture to enlarge
This morning, I went out to take my Grandson to the bus stop when I discovered an interesting phenomena on the trees.  Apparently, we had some interesting fog last night and with the very gentle breeze and temperatures in the single digits, ice crystals began to form on the south side of all the branches.  I don't mean facing down, I mean facing due south.

I happened to catch this shot just as the sun was popping over the house across the street and the sky was this deep blue.  I did not use a polarizing lens on this shot.

F-stop F/10 ~ Exposure time - 1/400 sec. ~ ISO-200 ~ Camera Nikon D50 ~ Lens Tamron 28-300
