Curious weather

It's a good job I didn't want to go cycling this morning as this was the state of my poor old bike left outside last night.
It's not snow, but a peculiar form of "soft" frost that has been forming in Hereford for the last two days not just overnight, but during the daytime as well.
The white particles seem to materialise out of thin air (and the air is very thin) and can appear to be falling as light snow, although the skies are clear and the sun is shining!
Whatever it is it's very pretty as you can see from some of this morning's scenes around Starcross Towers

Aylestone Tunnel on the Herefordshire & Gloucestershire Canal passes under this road at the bend.
