I was fascinated by this hoarfrost that formed at zero degrees (-18°C) on top of pond ice, how it looked like a flock of birds.

This is a very nice abstract. The diagonal is a good idea.
Dave Bonta: Thanks - I'm glad you think so. It seems to me that I use a diagonal much too often, but then I suppose there are only so many interesting ways to arrange things within a rectangular frame!

It does! i feel as if I were looking down from a thousand feet at a maelstrom of birds.

Dave, this is one of the most unique and beautiful images of frost that I've ever seen. I must mark it as a likey.

The diagonal works perfectly here. The B&W ...just everything.

That's remarkable.
This is wonderful patterning Dave: we rarely get hoare frosts here where I live in the UK. If there's the slightest possibility I'm there waiting with my camera

That's wild. Reminds me of an Escher, a bit more disorganized.
