Frost Queen, Saskatchewan, Canada by Scott Aspinall

This photograph is of hoar frost, a phenomenon that frequents Saskatchewan. Hoar frost occurs when soft ice crystals form on an object that is cooled below the freezing mark. Hoar frost makes brutal Saskatchewan winters very beautiful, at least from a photography standpoint. Having experienced a couple of bouts with hoar frost already, I had this spot pegged for a future photograph. That morning, the morning light hit a light fog in the scene, creating a pinkish glow.
