Ice crystals

When the ground is saturated with water and the temperatures drop, the water turns to ice – we all know this.  Yet, given the right conditions, some of that water may turn into pillars of ice, spurting up from the earth.

  1. Gorgeous, never seen this

    • It’s quite incredible. They were everywhere: on the paths, on the banks, in the undergrowth. It looked like diamonds, or broken glass, sprinkled on the path as we walked.

  2. I guess I’ve led a very sheltered warm weather life, because I’ve never seen this outside of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. Very cool.

  3. Beautiful photos! 🙂
