Frosty Fractals, Part 2

Last year during a January cold snap, some beautiful frost formations appeared on some of our windows and I posted them on my blog, here.

It got down to about 9 degrees last night, so the conditions were good for some frost to form on our garage windows. The sky was also very clear today, which provided some nice bright light in order to get the full effects of the intricate frost.

I always enjoy the sparkling fractal patters that form in the frost. Sadly, the sparkle doesn’t translate very well with the camera, but the patterns are clearly visible by just adding a little more contrast to the picture, and adding a solarizing effect. Here are a few pictures for all the fractal fans out there to enjoy from the warmth of their own homes!
