Cypress in ice

A large cypress covered in ice on its north facing side. At first sight it looked like snow but I quickly realized that the trees were covered with rock hard ice on one side. What must have happened is that during the last storm wet snow was falling (at this altitude, around 1300 m, it can't have been that much below freezing point on this specific day) and was being driven by gale force winds which packed the wet snow with so much pressure that it turned to ice.
