Bright Snowy Night

A nearly full moon illuminates a snow-covered boreal forest in Fairbanks, Alaska. I loved the sparkly little snowflakes in the foreground. Except they’re not actually snowflakes, but hoarfrost crystals that form on the snow surface during cold nights. We have no shortage of cold nights here in Fairbanks, so we see a lot of hoarfrost on the ground and vegetation. Really, it’s March 5th and the temperature at the airport is -38°F (-39°C).
