Marsh ice

patterns in suspended ice

One of the walks we take has areas that are (seasonally) somewhat marshy. An excursion Sunday took us by one, and I was intrigued to find ice floating in midair.

Evidently the water levels had been higher when the ice formed, and then retreated, leaving ice attached to vegetation suspended. There were lots of layers at different heights, sometimes overlapping. Very cool!

    1. It’s very weird, I can’t see why it’s happening… I mean, you’re posting from a wordpress account! I told wordpress again that you are Not Spam. If it happens again I’ll see if I can get a support person to figure out what’s going on.
