Icicles

We dropped down to the shoreline on our way home from physio yesterday and my stalwart assistant photographer, Mrs. F.G.,  hopped out of the car to take some photos.  As the waves continue to roll in the ice accumulates in interesting patterns on the few sad trees growing right at the waterline.

The bay was deep dark blue in the late afternoon sun.

The ice formed interesting patterns on the short broken branches.

Here are the icicles, dripping all the branches; note the ice on the tree trunk.

This ice will persist all winter, coming and going, shifting in shape, all winter long.  It sure makes something interesting to watch for down at the shore.

  1. I've seen this kind of thing beside waterfalls but never on a shoreline. Almost like Christmas decorations!

  2. Oh my! Impressive and a bit scary. The third one looks a bit like an icy lobster hanging on for dear life.

  3. Your shoreline ice looks thicker and denser than the ice we usually get down here around Bayfield. Wouldn't it be neat if the town could drop some harmless masses of food coloring into the water and create huge clumps of colored icicle sculptures:)) Oh and I forgot to mention an idea I had about your new 'hat' from yesterday's post. Maybe Mrs. FG could sew a band around the hat where you could stick in some feathers. No, nothing to do with Indian tradition but everything to do with you having a place to stick a feather in your hat after every accomplishment you make. 'Walla'....another feather in your cap:))
