Ice Patterns


When I went looking for waterfowl Saturday morning I was greeted with thin ice covering the entire wetland and no waterfowl to be found. I had expected as much as the thermometer read 19 deg F when I left home.

Although I could not photograph waterfowl I was delighted to capture the geometric patterns in the ice.

Nice capture Coy. Interesting ice patterns.

I have a post coming up tomorrow, would love for you to stop by and see if you can identify this duck. I couldn't find him on any of the online guides.

I haven't bothered to look but I do remember these ice patterns and always wondered if they are stress lines caused by the sun or cold?

Sometimes we settle for what is there and come away with such unusual photography we can't be disappointed about what was not there.
