  1. Interesting! Reminds me of Saran wrap.

    Great shots, Eliza! Be careful with such dangerous ice!

  3. Anne says:

    Very N-ice indeed and lovely for me to see.

  4. Joanne says:

    A very unusual ice formation. It looks like it could be sharp if broken!

      Thank you, Joanne. Yes, it could, but I’ve never tested it. 😉
      I’m not one who loves to smash ice in puddles, etc. I prefer to just enjoy and record the patterns. Ice here comes in so many forms. The clarity of this ice is more rare, as conditions have to be just so… low oxygen levels and rapid drop in temps.

    What interesting patterns! Though I must confess, I’m glad we don’t have ice here right now, ha!

  17. Ice and spiderwebs go hand in hand when admiring their intricacies. Beautiful. Have a great week.

  18. Always enjoy looking at the ice for new discoveries and love the wonderful and unusual patterns you captured!🙂

  19. Wonderful patterns! But it can be slippery underfoot.

  20. It’s so interesting how freezing water in a creek or pond develops what looks like a film or membrane.

    Dark and light. Finding nice in the darkness is all about life 🙏

  22. Widdershins says:

    Looks like very thin toffee brittle. 🙂

  23. Kris P says:

    That’s the weirdest ice formation I’ve ever seen. I would’ve sworn it was dirty saran wrap.

  24. jillslawit says:

    Now it feels like winter.

  26. What curious edge effects. It’s like the sheet has been hemmed or rolled!

  27. Bela Johnson says:

    That first photo looks like a frozen sheet of kelp! Wild! Beautiful.

  28. N-ice indeed. They look a bit like stained glass without the stain. 🙂

  29. Your ice is definitely nice!
