Sparkly


That's the lake near our house. Still unfrozen in early January. That's not something we've seen so far since we've been living here. It usually freezes over at around the time of the winter solstice and then melts again at the spring equinox. I thought it would freeze last night, as the temperature dropped to -15°C/5°F, but here it is, still sparkling the sun back at us.

The stream has frozen again, making its usual interesting shapes. I like the rabid-jaw effect of the ice in this shot:

It can be disconcerting when the weather doesn't follow its usual course.
