Artist's Description

Not it’s real name. I don’t know if it even has a real name. I doubt it.
Was walking past this tiny tarn on the way to Lake Lilla on Fathers Day and possibly would have missed the fact that it was frozen over if not for Tinnie pointing it out. Thank you Mark – I owe you! When I went over to check it out I noticed that the heavy frost on the button grass stems was not blanket frost as I expected it to be. It was millions of tiny individual crystals each about 5mm long.
It was a magic frozen wonderland over in there. Snow patches all over, Ice crystals on the grass stems, a pond frozen over with a crystaline structure. I could have spent a lot longer there than I did.
The horizon shadow that is about 200 metres in altitude above me in this shot, took 4 minutes to get to this tarn. I was amazed at how fast it came down the cliff face.
