Here’s another shot of the amazing frost we found at Bryce Canyon last year. These crystals were an inch or so long and completely covered three or four small conifers.
What this shot doesn’t show is how tricky it was to get to the trees to photograph them. The area was covered in about four feet of snow with a hard frozen layer on top. As you tried to walk over it, you broke through the top layer and ended up floundering about underneath trying to get back to the surface again. Fellow trip participant, David Deutch grabbed this somewhat unflattering image of me attempting to negotiate the snowfield just prior to taking the shot above.
