Minus Four But Worth It...

By billydo  
Parts of Suffolk experienced a "rime frost" last Friday, but I couldn't get out to see it all! Managed to get out on Saturday and although the morning didn't appear to be quite as spectacular I still managed to get a few shots I was pleased with.

Thanks for looking.

Rime frost is- Quote---thick white frost formed especially from frozen water droplets from clouds or fog--"rimy"--[b][b]-frosty--covered with rime--Anglo Saxon HRIM---un-quote..[/b][/b]
Hope you don't mind me explaing the meaning of rime, as Eightball wanted to know.
These shots are one of my favourite types and this is superb

Lovely image and the sweep of the reeds lead the eye in well. The warm tones seem to contradict slightly with the freezing conditions. I bet this will be spectacular in black&white or cool toned.

Thanks very much for the feedback everyone, especially Pete (videotec) for the description of a rime frost. This type of frost was new to me, but magical to witness... tiny glistening particles of ice floating down like very fine snow, and with the freezing temperatures the scenery changed dramatically in a short period of time.

Passaro: I guess that my choice of a cloudy white balance may be the cause of the toning that you see.

Rime frost? Glad you're reading that dictionary I got you for xmas lad! Another cracker mate, lovely tones.

Lovely shot Neal, don't know about reading the dictionary thought you were eating it!
Super winter scene.
