Seeing this cross, please cast your opinion - from which side, left or right, was the wind blowing? It's interesting to think about this!

Looks to me like the wind came mostly from the right but also came from the left for a little while. Rime ice is on both sides, but less on the left.

Jeah, you're both right - you and the Lower Marmot. But it's interesting - I have a similar picture and more than half of people said the wrong side - as if they were looking a flag waving in the wind.

Hi Vid,



You did well with this photo. Perfect composure, excellent framing, etc. When driving in ice fog, I have seen rime ice form on the hood ornament and the radio antenna of my car - always on the leading edge. Also on trees at passes and ridges. Photography is an art, to be sure. Having spent 45 years working at it, as a hobby, I can say this.



I am glad to be a part of the sp community and am glad to have the opportunity to converse with people such as yourself, much more experienced than I in serious mountain climbing.



Best regards,



Don Nelsen

I must confess, I'd already seen this pointed out in a past photo of the week
