I probably shoud not encourage the image of quaint, cute little Switzerland with toy box towns, but this photo, by one of my favorite photographers on Flickr, is a wonderful image. It evokes early mornings on Swiss Intercity trains, running from Lausanne to Bern and seeing little hamlets and towns in the mist. It's worth a visit to the original on Flickr to click on "all sizes" and see it large - you'll spy out another whole layer of life at the top of the photo.

Do your trees get frosted like that on a regular basis, or is that an occasional phenomenon?

We might get trees looking like that once or twice each winter, curious to know if yours see more ice.

This isn't my photo, it's by a woman who lives near Neuchatel, and the little towns on the plain near there do get lovely winter frost.
