Ice Skirts on the Creek
With another January thaw upon us, we've had a lot of melting and high water levels, followed by cold freezing nights. It's a time to find some great ice formations along the creeks, rivers, and down in the swamps. Today I'll share these 'ice skirts', a fringe of small icicles that form where an ice shelf builds up out from the banks of a creek. If the ice shelf is think enough, and the water underneath is flowing fast, the small splashes on the underside of the ice form these 'skirts' of small icicles. Just another bit of beauty that nature provides.
