Frost

Stock Photography By Dennis Kraft

In colder climes, frost is nature's jewelry. In the right weather conditions, with the right amount of wind, cold temperatures, and a little water vapour, the landscape, trees, grasses, and buildings become decked in white crystalline jewelry. Frost rarely lasts longer than a few hours but when it does, it can transform the mundane into the stunningly beautiful.

Image Details for Frost

1. Frosted Trees and Green Fence. On this frosty morning the green colour of the fence seems more vivid. The contrast between white and colour seems highlighted.

2. Frosted Tree 01. This coniferous tree is lightly decorated in frost crystals highlighting the contrast between the dark and light colours.

3. Frosted Tree 02. A deciduous tree coated in frost and contrasting dark and light colours.

4. Frosted Tree and Road. Simple tree decked in frost, dark country road. Beautiful!

5. Country Road and Frosted Tree. Days where frost coats everything are relatively rare on the prairies. The humidity tends to be fairly dry and the Rocky Mountains tend to filter out the heavy moisture. When a frost day does occur the resulting landscape is spectacular for a few hours and if one is really lucky, a day.

6. Frost and the Red Tractor. On frost days when the covering of ice crystals is predominant, colours seem to become more vivid. Contrast between white and colour seem highlighted. This red tractor in a world of muted white is a perfect example.

7. Frost and the Shed. Types of frost include hoar frost ( deposition of water vapour on surfaces), white frost, window frost on glass, advection frost caused by wind blowing over cold areas, rime when a heavy ice forms over the surface of an object.

8. Frosted Tree and Hay Bales. Part of the beauty of the prairies in winter is that nature seems to emphasize contrast, the stark differences between light and dark. Everything appears clearer more detailed and yet simpler.

9. Frost Field and Fence Post. When a frost day does occur the resulting landscape is spectacular for a few hours and if one is really lucky, a day.

10. Frosted Tree and Weeds. This is one of my favourite shots. The lighting, the frosting of the weeds and trees and the backlight just felt magical in a day that filled with natural delights. .

11. Winter Wonderland 01. A frost covered spruce tree amidst a number of aspen groves is decked in white.

12. Frosted Trees in the Countryside 04. Types of frost include hoar frost ( deposition of water vapour on surfaces), white frost, window frost on glass, advection frost caused by wind blowing over cold areas, rime when a heavy ice forms over the surface, and black frost when areas freeze without visible ice,

13. Frosted Trees in the Countryside 03. Frost crystals can be clear or translucent. When light hits the crystalline surfaces, it is scattered in different directions making the area appear white.

14. Frosted Trees in the Countryside. The day this photo was taken, the whole countryside was painted in whites and silver frosts from a humid air system that had moved into the colder region the night before. The countryside was magically beautiful.

15. Frosted Grasses 01. Days where frost coats everything are relatively rare on the prairies. The humidity tends to be fairly dry and the Rocky Mountains to the West tend to filter out the heavy moisture.

16. Frosted Brush. Frost does cause some tissue damage to plants but some are surprisingly resistant.

17. Frosted Grasses 02. Frost does cause some tissue damage to plants but some are surprisingly resistant and prairie grasses seem to be well adapted.

18. Frosted Weeds and Fence . There is magical in the way frost paints vegetation and fences, tinting everything in whites and silvers.

19. Frosted Metalt Fence 02. As water vapour as deposited on surfaces, it forms into crystal spicules. As more water vapour comes into contact with the frozen crystals, more crystals forms often become more complex and intricate. As a rule, the surface of an area must be colder than the surrounding air for frost to begin to form.

20. Frosted Fence Line and Tree Branches . Frost usually forms overnight when humid air passes through an area and becomes chilled due to below freezing temperatures. fThe water vapour usually forms fragile white crystals or dew drops.

21. Frosted Fence and Tree 02. Frost usually forms overnight when humid air passes through an area and becomes chilled due to below freezing temperatures. Frost usually only lasts for a few hours before changing temperatures melt it away.

22. Frosted Grove and Fence . Types of frost include hoar frost ( deposition of water vapour on surfaces), white frost, window frost on glass, advection frost caused by wind blowing over cold areas, and rime when a heavy ice forms over a surface coating everything in thick ice.

23. Frosted Trees in the Countryside 01. Days where frost coats everything are relatively rare on the prairies. The humidity tends to be fairly dry and the Rocky Mountains tend to filter out the heavy moisture. When a frost day does occur the resulting landscape is spectacular for a few hours and if one is really lucky, a full day.

24. Frosted Trees in the Countryside 02. Frost does cause some tissue damage to plants but some are surprisingly resistant.

25. Frost On A Metal Fence. Black metal has a low thermal heat making it a conducive surface for frost. Frost rimming on the edges of objects usually forms against the direction of the wind.

26. Frosty Waterfall 02. The top rim of the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho is decorated in silver and white frost while icicles have formed along the lower rim of the the canyon walls.

27. Frosty Waterfall 01. The top rim of the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho is decorated in silver and white frost while icicles have formed along the lower rim of the the canyon walls.

28. Frost and Sage Canyon View 03. The top rim of the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho is decorated in silver and white frost after a humid air front moved into the area during the night.

29. Frosted Sage Canyon View 02. The top rim of the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho is decorated in silver and white frost after a humid air front moved into the area during the night.

30. Frosted Sage Canyon View 01. The top rim of the Snake River Canyon near Twin Falls, Idaho is decorated in silver and white frost after a humid air front moved into the area during the night. Thickness of frost can be effected by the altitude of the area, the amount of water vapour in the air, and the wind speed.

31. Canyon of Frost . A humid air system moved into the canyon rim area during the night. The water vapour coated the cooler surfaces of the vegetation and morning light reveals a winter wonderland.

32. Canyon of Frost 02. Trees and vegetation painted in silver and white at the top of the Snake River Canyon in Idaho. In the West we have created a personified version of frost named Jack Frost who changes leaf colour, coats the world in whites and paints windows with frosted silver.

33. Aspen Grove in Winter 01. There are often two or three frost days in the winter where thick hoar frost coats the branches and twigs of trees, creating beautiful white sculptures that glisten. This Aspen poplar tree is one such example

34. Aspen Grove in Winter 02. There are often two or three frost days in the winter where thick hoar frost coats the branches and twigs of trees, creating beautiful white sculptures that glisten. This Aspen poplar tree is one such example

35. Winter Aspens 01. Aspen trees thrive in the foothills of the Eastern Rockies. While many other deciduous trees can not handle the sudden temperature shifts of the climate in Western Alberta. The temperature may change by more than 30 degrees celsius in a number of hours due to the warm winds called Chinooks. Aspens are superbly adapted to the environment and on days when the frost comes they are beautiful.

36. Winter Aspens 02. Aspen trees thrive in the foothills of the Eastern Rockies. While many other deciduous trees can not handle the sudden temperature shifts of the climate in Western Alberta. The temperature may change by more than 30 degrees celsius in a number of hours due to the warm winds called Chinooks. Aspens are superbly adapted to the environment and on days when the frost comes they are beautiful.

37. Winter Land 01. This grey stark landscape captures the mood of winter in the Canadian foothills of Canada.
