We found out last week that the bay area can become quite cold at night. The drop in temperatures turned the humidity in the air to small ice crystals and covered everything with a sparkly layer of frost. I took this picture on a scouting trip to the Blue Oak Ranch Reserve shortly before the sun melted all the ice again. I liked the contrast between the big spikes of this plant and the tiny crystals that formed on them.
