Wave-Spray Rime on Grass

Rime often forms from freezing fog, or spray blown off of bodies of water.  In this case, it was fine spray—flung several yards inland off the tops of waves crashing into Lake Thunderbird’s shoreline, in bitter-cold and windy conditions.  The howling norther of the day before calmed down overnight, sunrise revealing a sparkling array of crystals clinging to the blades of lakeside grass.
