Chasing Ice Formations

This is the first morning for over 2 weeks that the temperature has been above freezing, and although there isn't a significant warmup forecast it looks the next 2 weeks will have little in the way of frost.

I have taken hundreds of photographs of frost and ice formations, every day has seen me checking the temperature early on and planning my walks to get as much variety of subject matter as possible. Yesterday I photographed a frozen stream in The Combe at East Harptree, it was all a rush but I got a few shots that will serve as memory jogs for this amazing winter of 2008/2009.
