White Crystalline Fur

As the temperatures sink into the 20s, snow that had fallen over the previous day serves as a substrate for crystal growth.

Water molecules in the air settle on the exposed ice surfaces, extending the existing crystals into this furry configuration.

Close up, the individual crystals appear as individual towers of ice.
