Still Learning To See

On ice again

We woke up to -18F this morning, normally ideal times to go see what has happened to the ice. Given the foot of snow we had over the weekend, however, I decided against going out as I expect most of the streams are now frozen and covered with snow.

I did manage to get to my favorite Middlesex stream again before the snow and see the continued progression. The ice had continued to age and was being supplemented by additions of more new ice. I love the changes that come with temperature and weather!

I love this one, a thin layer of pebbled, new ice over the stony stream bed:

And these two showing the relationships between fast-moving water and clear ice built up little by little:

And finally, not ice exactly, but snow, gently covering a leaf of Red Oak leaving just a hint of Fall:
