Foggy Crystals on Snow
The last few days we have had very foggy, freezing weather in Utah Valley. The freezing fog has created delicate crystals on the deep layer of snow in our front yard. I found that these delicate crystals were hard to photograph because of the camera refused to focus on the surface of the brightly lit snow in the afternoon when the fog had lifted. I finally captured a few shots and found that by converting the images to gray scale, I could see more detail in the frost. Yes, these are very small crystals, probably about a half and inch long and they completely cover the surface of the snow.
