On Boxing Day we were in Kielder walking up the Lewis Burn. It was cold and the path surfaces were frozen, but there was no hoar frost. However in various places small dead wood branches showed this ice phenomenon. Our daughter said that in Kielder it is known as Angel Hair, but googling that gets you only nonsense beauty product sites or references to vermicelli pasta.
Does anyone know what causes this particular extrusion of ice crystals?
The third photo was taken in the ruins of Low Long House where there is a range of memorial stones and mini-monuments. I just wondered if I had missed George's demise?
