Soft rime is a white ice deposition that forms when the water droplets in light freezing fog or mist freeze to the outer surfaces of objects, with calm or light wind. The fog freezes usually to the windward side of tree branches, wires, or any other solid objects.
we’re learning about types of ice we had never seen outside of finnish postcards. soft rime is unbelievably beautiful and eerie, and makes simple walks in the park truly magical experiences. it only happens once in a while when the conditions are perfect, so every time one of those days comes along, we run out of the house, cameras in hand :)
