Cold but beautiful

I was reading The View From The Hill where Hilltop Katie had posted some pictures of icicles in a frozen waterfall. This reminded me of some more of the pictures I took whilst on holiday the other week.

 As we drove from Exmouth down to Lostwithiel we noticed something hanging from the hedges at the side of the road which turned out to be icicles. 

As we had the heater on we hadn't even noticed it was cold enough for icicles; there was no snow and apparently it hadn't rained either. I had to stop the car and take a picture it looked so beautiful.

Further on, whilst driving over Dartmoor we stopped again to admire the line of frost edging a distant plantation and the frosted tips of the moorland grass when I noticed the tiny flags of ice clinging to the tips of the blades of grass.

It must have been so cold that the moisture in the air had frozen onto the grass and the prevailing wind had formed it into these tiny tags.
