Colorless Winter ... Frozen Images

Few things are really fun to do in the truly freezing cold like we have had the last couple of days. Simple things are made difficult by layers, and photography is no exception. Still it must be done, yes?
Interesting pattern of ice formation here showing pancake ice, the big scaly bits, meeting frozen waves of the open lake. Pancake ice forms on flowing water and jams up against each other like tectonic plates do. This makes ripples in the ice.

This kind of cool too. The wind whips the grass around and prevents the ice from forming,
When wind blows over the warmer water, like when the temperature is in single digits, you get sublimation, as ice forms rapidly.

And then you have the classic frozen waterfall look when you go up high and the temperatures plummet even more.

So, get out there and take some pictures!
