Frost-covered trees and Glastonbury Tor
Frost-covered trees and Glastonbury Tor. Hoar frost covering three willow (Salix sp.) trees in a field on a farm. St Michael's Tower can be seen on the summit of Glastonbury Tor in the background. Hoar frost results when heat is lost through radiation into the open sky on cold clear nights, causing objects to become colder than the surrounding air. This temperature difference causes the water in the warmer air to condense on the colder objects and then freeze into small ice crystals. Photographed in Somerset, England, UK, in December.

Water cistern in the Strand
The Strand Lane Baths, at 5 Strand Lane, London WC2R 2NA, have been reputed since the 1830s to be a Roman survival. In fact they are the remaining portion of a cistern built in 1612 to feed a fountain in the gardens of the old Somerset House, then a royal palace.
