Icicles - this ice stalactites. Melt water by gravity flow down, and due to the cold ambient air is frozen. Because of this freezing water icicles size increases. (Photo by Ted S. Warren):
Frozen "Beetles" in Germany. By the way, it is the most popular car in history, made without revising the basic design. Total 21,529,464 cars were manufactured. (Photo by Karl- Josef Hildenbrand):

Freezing rain in Oregon. In most cases, the phenomenon is observed at a temperature of 0 ... -10 °, sometimes up to -15 °. Ice balls formed during freezing rain droplets when the latter are falling through the lower air layer with negative temperature. Inside the ball is unfrozen water - falling objects, balls are broken into shells, water flows and formed black ice.

Beautiful winter fence. Snow is formed when microscopic water droplets in clouds of dust particles are attracted to and are frozen. Emerging with ice crystals not exceeding initially 0, 1 mm in diameter, fall down and grow as a result of the condensation of moisture from the air. In this form six-pointed crystalline forms.
