Frost on a Branch

We went for an outing to look for birds and found the world filled with the most amazing frost crystals. These extraordinary crystals were formed when there was a dense fog and freezing temperatures. The light conditions were not optimal and it was very cold, but had the sun come out, the frost was so light and fragile that it would have disappeared in an instant. These particular crystals were about three inches long. The slightest breeze caused showers of crystals to come off of the trees and fall like snow. These crystals were very near to Utah Lake on the Provo River Trail.
