This photo of rime ice was taken around 9:00 a.m. on a late December morning in Winamac, Indiana. Fog had been observed the previous night, and because the temperatures were below freezing, the fog resulted in the occurrence of rime or hoarfrost on exposed surfaces. By mid-morning, the Sun's warmth and an increasing breeze had sublimated these delicate ice crystal formations.

Camera: Canon Digital Rebel with 18-55mm lens, IS0 100, f/10.0 at 1/160th sec.
