Seeing ice form is one of the great delights of my life. Not only understanding why and where it forms on a small stream this time of year but also enjoying the beauty of the resulting dynamic changes.
Last week the ice was forming in only a few places, mainly in areas open to the sky where the rocks had probably cooled more.That a small difference in temperature results in these dramatic changes never ceases to amaze me!
As temperatures again drop below zero in the next week, the changes will be even more substantial and soon most of the ice will probably be snow-covered as well.
Ice! Amazing stuff.
