Caption: Ice that has formed slowly overnight on a puddle in a shady corner of the New Forest. Ice that forms slowly has large crystals. Parts of the surface are still liquid shown by the meniscuses in the centre of the crystals (see triangle on right on image). The colour is simply the reflection of a clear blue sky at dawn.
