Hoarfrost

We had a hoarfrost this morning.  The definition is: a grayish-white crystalline deposit of frozen water vapor formed in clear still weather on vegetation, fences, etc.  The crystals disappear as soon as the sun hits them, so this was one of those mornings when I grabbed the camera, pulled on my boots and ran outside in my bathrobe to capture the beautiful frosting before it was gone.
