Emergent 6

On an extremely cold day last year I drove my commute for the usual 25 minutes with the heat on in the car.  After I got inside at my workplace I remembered I had my camera in the car.  In just the few minutes I had been away, frost was already emerging from the frigid temperatures. In 10-15 minutes these ice crystals would entirely cover the windshield.

Don't they look vicious!
Mary MacADNski: They surely move fast.
You have discovered a weird forest Mary.
Mary MacADNski: It reminded me of trees too.
Well seen, Mary, a little forest.
Mary MacADNski: They do look like a forest of very old spruce trees.

Mary MacADNski: It was really a sight to see!
It obviously doesn't take long to freeze round your way Mary.
Mary MacADNski: This was a period of very, very frigid temperatures.

They are really pretty Mary
Mary MacADNski: I love the tree-look.
The frost on your windshield created a spectacular abstract magic forest Mary... i love it....petersmile
Mary MacADNski: We have to find the beauty!
I have only had frost on the windscreen about 3 times all winter!
Mary MacADNski: I have it lots and lots of days.
Amazing and most attractive, on the thumbnail I though I was seeing frosted trees.
Mary MacADNski: They do look like old black spruce trees.

Fascinating t see the ice crystals developing. I believe that you have to warm up the camera slowly when bringing in from a cold environment because of fogging inside it.
Mary MacADNski: It was in my house all night and in the warm car with me. It did experience a bit of condensation, as you can see.
They look like skinny trees in the top image. Cool.
Mary MacADNski: Yes, very old spruce trees, Jacquelyn.
So amazing! I love ice crystals - these are lovely pics - I'm so glad you thought to rescue your camera... #1 to take these, #2 to save your camera!
Mary MacADNski: I usually take my pocket sized camera so must have had a reason to take this one on a frigid day.
