Fitting for the first day of December is this amazing photograph of windswept frost formations in a wooded expanse in the Beskydy Mountains bordering between Slovakia and the Czech Republic. Photographer Jan Bainar was hiking the area when he caught sight of these frosty designs on one side of the tree trunks in the forest. These fanciful shapes, created by the combination of low temperatures, slight precipitation and high winds, look like silvery gray hair flowing out from both sides of a part on someone's head.
