Rime ice on the rushes

On a very cold walk along Stanage Edge today, I marvelled at the rime ice that had formed on the rushes and other vegetation.

Rime ice is the white curst that builds up on the windward side of objects in exposed areas, thereby showing the direction that the wind has been blowing in.
