Last night was a rather cold night so today I could go out and find ice and frozen hail (we got several showers of hail yesterday) to photograph. When taking a few photos of leaves frozen in ice, I accidentally broke the ice cap in the big drum we use to collect rain water. That wouldn't have been much of a story if my sis hadn't walked past a few hours later and found the fascinating, thing ice crystals that had started to grow on the broken edges of the ice. Got several photos of it, one of which you can see above. Isn't it pretty?
