The sun was rising and there was a faint haziness as I looked off into the tree line.
It's so disappointing to see these pictures upon download - if you had been there to see it, these two shrubs were absolutely covered with sparkle, and even slight movements of my head would bring out a whole new crop of different sparkles. Just breathtakingly beautiful - here you can only see hints of some of the glinting. Why oh why does my camera not show the sparkle?!
Here you can see how the crystals form in ordered lines along the branches of the trees. When I looked closely, I could see how each one was a slightly different shape and conformation.
