Ice textures and patterns
« on: Oct 16, 2018, 07:44 AM »
I love the different textures and patterns that form on the ice over a season. Here is few of my favorites I have snapped pics of over the years. Post yours.

The 3rd pic is on a large lake where less than an inch or so of ice has formed, then kind of broken up and shoved by the wind to shore. How it's gets into those similar sized chunks? Mother nature is awesome. The 4th pic is around 18" of ice or more that has been baked by 70 degree sunshine for a couple days, with many hours of warm wind.. if I remember right the winds howled all nite on it. I can see the lake from a hill when I pull up, could have sworn it was waves and open water from a distance.

Last year I got pictures of the frost on the lake , I think its neat how it looks like feathers and just turns to powder when you touch it 😁 growing up in southern Oklahoma I never seen it before moving up here to Alaska.

Fishing was fantastic though!
