Day 38 by FramedByNature Day 38 by FramedByNature
Day 38 of 365

Here's a typical view when looking through my viewfinder while shooting frost. Really weird how snowflakes form so symmetrically, yet frost crystals can make pretty much any shape imaginable. This kind of gives you an idea of how my "Love of Winter" shot came to be. I keep looking for crystals as cool as that one ;)

And do these just form on any old glass? :iconmmmplz:

Ummmm. I'm not sure. Ours are double-paned, which helps (I woudl imagine). I'm guessing since they're double-paned, moisture gets trapped between the layers of glass and freezes :)

Actually, if moisture is between double panes of glass, they're defective. Normally they're sealed, filled with a pure gas, I think Argon, because it's an extremely good insulator. There shouldn't be condensation forming between the panes. So it probably forms on the outside, but I imagine the gas insulation does help a little bit, possibly by allowing the pane's temperature to remain right at freezing for longer, so that larger and more elaborate crystals have a chance to form.

That would definitely make sense. Though, I wouldn't be surprised if our windows were defective. Haven't had them replaced since '88, so their seal has had plenty of time to wear away :XD:
