Frosted Dune

December 6, 2013

Fall in Delaware is a combination of cold days, followed by warm, then back to cold. As I write this it is 60 degrees at 9:30 at night but a few days ago frost formed on the dunes before sunrise.  First light cast long shadows but not enough heat to thaw the icy crystals.
