Frozen In Motion


I'm not sure how well this totally neat ice turned out, but I'll try to explain what you are seeing. First, the blue is a cheap 3' wide kiddie pool. It filled with rainwater, and then the water froze in our January freeze. The little lines you see are ice bubbles that froze slowly enough to elongate through the dense water and make long pockets of air. The ice is about four inches thick here, and it lasted for several weeks. The bubble-lines are about a centimeter or two long.

Just one of the totally awesome things I saw...
