Caption: Hoar frost on silver birch trees (Betula pendula). Hoar frost is formed when moist air above the ground cools rapidly to below freezing point. Needle-like deposits of ice crystals are formed on cold surfaces such as tree branches when water vapour or condensation (dew) freezes. Photographed in the Northumberland National Park, England.
