Sorry to be picky, but that's hoarfrost: large plate crystals that grew over the still nights. Rime is ice that condenses out of the breeze, building up on the windward sides of objects and forming spikes that point into the wind.

Re: Hoarfrost

Thanks for telling me that word. I searched my dictionary but couldn' t find anything. So I chose the closest word I knew. Cheers Lukas
