"Frosted Giants"

A thick layer of rime ice covers the highest branches in a stand of large beech trees, shortly after the sun climbed above an inversion layer on the German-Czech border.

I uploaded a short video of the beech trees making all kinds of dicey sounds, swaying in the wind; to my FB page. A very unsettling feeling, considering beech trees' tendency to drop large limbs under their own weight, even without wind and/or a thick layer of ice.
