Hair ice?

Well we have at last enjoyed a bit of sunshine recently, giving us a bit of a break from the relentless wet weather. With clearer skies we also get colder nights of course, providing the opportunity for some interesting frost formations. These pictures of “hair ice” were recently sent in to me from Ashley in Throwleigh. The photos were taken last Saturday 18th January at the National Trust car park in Postbridge. I must say that I am unsure as to why ice formed on this particular branch, so if anyone has any ideas then please e-mail me!
