Time for a Rime Lapse

2015-04-26 18:19:07.000 – Kaitlyn O’Brien, Co-director of Summit Operations


You’ve probably seen our time lapse photography in the past, (if you haven’t check it out here!) but have you ever seen rime lapse photography?
 Yesterday, our north view camera captured some incredible rime ice growing on the window as well as on the exterior wall of the building.

Rime ice occurs when we have temperatures below freezing and foggy conditions. Supercooled water droplets suspended in the fog freeze instantaneously and form long feathery strands of rime that, perhaps counterintuitively, grow into the wind.
