A Winter Wonderland

That Old Tree

I know that I perhaps shouldn't post too many photos of the old tree, but I have to show you this one. As it has been a long and cold winter we have seen a few days with hard rime over the last week. The Swedish word for that weather phenomenon is Rimfrost which I find a bit more poetic. Anyway, you will have to agree with me that the old tree does look a bit different from just last week.

I suppose Rimefrost is similar to our hoar frost. It makes things pretty.

Thanks to your link, I now know the differences in frozen water droplets. Although I am getting very tired of cold weather and snow and ice, I think the tree is extraordinarily beautiful.

Bundled up with snow for a cover, the old tree is a beauty even when she wears nothing.

So many different looks to this old tree. Don't worry Steffe, we aren't tired of it yet.

You could post a picture of this old tree every day and I wouldn't mind! This one is lovely.

As Olivier mentioned: it looks like an etching. Very beautiful.

Steffe said...

Thanks all. I'm glad I did walk that way when I did because all the Rimfrost is gone now.

The wonder of winter is how we always find it such a surprise.
