Winter is upon us on the West Coast. As a result, low lying objects are covered in dazzling spicules of ice. The two images I present to you today demonstrate how the formation of the ice crystals differ from one area to another. The thick crust of spiky ice crystals on the green leaf depicts an image I shot less than 30cm from the ocean water. The leaves in the second image appear to have sugar lightly sprinkled on them. The second photo was taken on a walking trail over 20m from the ocean front.
