Day 19

We had a really beautiful hoar frost today. It's impossible to describe this phenomenon in just one picture, so I'm posting two - first, a close-up view of the frost - those "needles" are up to 40 millimetres (1 1/2 inches) long - you can see them bending under their own weight.

...and a larger view - the twigs and smaller branches are covered with rime, but not the trunks and bigger boughs, giving the effect of white foliage. Against the grey sky it is quite beautiful, and just a little eerie.

Oh, and in case you're interested, I never actually wrote them, but these are the rules for my 365:
1. Post at least one picture per day.
2. The picture must be taken on my iPhone.
3. It must be taken on the day of posting.
4. No Photoshopping is allowed.
