Ice-sketches

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you'll know that I'm fascinated by ice formations. The first photo I took this morning was of one of the artefacts left behind by the weekend's freezing rain:

Come, let me clutch thee.

Much more interesting, though, were the live ice-pictures being created at the edge of the stream by air entering below the layer of ice. They were just mesmerising:

Amazing clip of the ice forming. How much was it speeded up?

Hi Carolyn - that's live, as it was happening. It was beautiful, watching the air making those patterns under the ice - the sort of thing that you are very lucky to catch. Glad I was there!

I took my fair share of ice photos the past few days, but that's because we got an ice storm. I was inspired by your photos to look around for how the ice coated things in odd ways. I think the ice on chicken wire is my favorite. You can see it here

Well, it was so amazing - I can't believe it forms in front of your eyes like that!

Emily, your photos are beautiful - I especially like the chicken wire and dogwood ones!
